Castelmagno is a dry, crumbly ewes' milk cheese from the Piedmont region is worth searching out if you are in Italy. It is has a strong, pungent flavour that takes some time to adjust to. Your second sample will be interesting and on the third sample you will crave for more.
On a recent trip to Torino we had two dishes that had been cooked with this cheese. Both were strongly flavoured and the cheese complemented the pasta perfectly.
