Quattro Portoni Caseificio | Quadrello di Bufala | Lombardy, Italy

$26.00 Per Pound

If you’ve never had cheese made with water buffalo milk before, you’re in for a treat. This animal’s milk contains twice as much fat as does cow’s milk, so don’t eat it if you’re on a diet. Not only is the milk richer, but it has a gamier flavor, which makes Quadrello di Bufala a very interesting variation on the Taleggio recipe. Quadrello has a firmer consistency than it’s cow cousin, and the taste, though sweeter and more mild, continues to evolve on your tongue. It is at once buttery, earthy, and a tad sour. Produced by second-generation farmers Bruno and Alfio Gritti, it’s a welcome new addition to the Italian cheesemaking tradition.

When shopping for alcohol, we want to make sure you know:

  • Alcohol cannot be delivered outside of New York State so beer, wine, and spirits will be removed from your cart during checkout if an address outside of New York State is selected for delivery.
  • Stinky BKLYN reserves the right not to deliver alcohol to certain buildings.
  • Smith & Vine and Stinky BKLYN are separate businesses. Because of this, you'll see two different charges on your preferred payment method when your order contains both wine/spirits and food. But don't worry—we'll deliver your whole order at once and only charge you a single delivery fee.
