Made from cow's milk, this variety of cheese is a farmhouse cheese from Italy that is aged for only 5 to 7 weeks. A longer aging version of this cheese is known as Bra Duro Cheese which is a "sister" cheese to the Bra Tenero cheeses. A Bra Duro cheese is aged for 3 months at a minimum or longer by some cheese producers in order to develop a sharper flavor. Semi-firm in texture, Bra Tenero Cheese has a mild cheddar-like flavor that is provided from the pale ivory paste that contains many small eyes. Bra Tenero Cheese is a good cheese to use as a table cheese or as an appetizer and can be paired nicely with light-bodied red wines or a variety of white wines.
