“What about the word “Latteria”?
comes from latte
To us, milk is more than a raw material: it is the foundation of our work, it is the result of the breeders’ dedication and hard work, it is the sign of the wellbeing of free range cows, it represents our territory and its biodiversity.
The quality and source of the milk remain our guiding lines
. Milk makes possible a miracle: a liquid that becomes solid, a paste that becomes as soft and delicate as a Stracciata
or as hard and strong as a Caciocavallo
In Capracotta, the village of our origins, and in Agnone, were the Caseificio is today, people still call our shop “La Latteria
”, the dairy, and calls us “the people of the Latteria
”. Protecting milk is our mission and is at the core of our business.
The art of making cheese for three centuries and a half
A number, a year, a starting point: 1662
. Lonardo Di Nuccio
, the first ancestor we were able to find information about, was born in 1662 in Capracotta. Since then, for three centuries and a half, the art of making cheese has been handed down from father to son in the Di Nucci family.
We value this date, we are grateful for having the chance to continue this tradition and we are doing our best to honor this heritage!
Agnone and the Alto Molise
A link with our land was essential: Agnone and Alto Molise are the origin of every gram of cheese that we produce. Our land is like a mother
: sometimes tough, but always generous, warm and beautiful.
The red color
The color used in our logo is RED because that is the color of blood, family and passion.
