Tuma Valcavera is an Italian cows milk cheese from the
Piedmont region in northern Italy. Produced by the La Botterra creamery, the cheese is made in medium sized wheels that range
from 8 to 12 pounds. Each cheese is covered in straw and aged in caves of “tufo” (a porous stone) for at least
two months. The pate is firm and dense in texture and ivory colored. Its flavor is rustic, slightly nutty, and light.
