Calcagno is produced by several small dairy farmers on the island of Sardinia. The sheep graze in the island's hills, which are lush with herbs, flowers, and grasses. This grazing ensures the milk produced is full of that flavor, which translates directly into the cheese. It is aged by Casa Madaio, an acclaimed cheese affineur (maturer) and producer located in Salerno, Italy.
