A variety of cheese that comes from the alpine countryside of northeastern Italy. Made from cow's milk, Langrein Cheese is produced in a region where Lagrein grapes are grown to make Lagrein wine. Lagrein Cheese is categorized as a wine-soaked type of cheese. The curd of the cheese is soaked in the red Lagrein wine after which the rind is often rubbed with herbs and spices before the cheese is aged. This procedure creates a firm-textured and somewhat elastic cheese paste with numerous cracks and eyes. Langrein Cheese is formed into wheels that are typically available in sizes that range from 4 to 5 pounds.
