La Corte is made in Italy's Piedmont region, at the dairy Caseificio Reale. It is a soft, dense and creamy Italian cheese made of blended sheep, cow and goats milk. It is most similar to the popular cheese "La Tur". It is creamy, delicate "tre latte" cheese that is slightly aromatic with a bloomy, wrinkly rind. It has a light texture and complex flavor that becomes more assertive toward the rind.
