Bitto is a traditional cheese of the Lombardy Alps. It is named after the river that flows down from Gerla. In celtic, Bitto means perpetual" and it is one of few cheeses that, if aged properly, can be consumed even after 10 years. Depending on the ageing, it can have a soft or hard rind. It is straw-yellow, but it can become brownish after a longer ageing. During the ageing its texture gets elastic, hard and crumbly, its aromas incredibly intense and its taste becomes sweet and delicate, characterized by all the typical flavours of the Alps. Its weight can be from 8 kg to 25 kg. "
