Aging cheese in caves is an ancient tradition which takes more work and therefore indicates a cheesemaker who is willing to slow down to develop deeper flavor. While being aged, cheeses are influenced by the temperature, humidity and atmosphere around them. These cheeses provide complex flavors and have an earthy element, including flavors of wet stone.
