Brigante is a sheep milk cheese from the Italian island of Sardinia.

Matured for about three weeks, it has a mild and creamy flavor with citrus undertones.  Its texture is smooth, moist, and fairly elastic. This is a delicious table cheese that is manufactured in wheels that are approximately three pounds.
