That's Amore Scamorza Bianca is a fresh, semi-soft cows milk cheese belonging to the pasta filata family. It is pear-shaped due to a production method called 'strangling the cheese', where the fresh round cheese is hung to dry by means of a string tied a third of the way from the top. Scamorza is made in the same way as mozzarella but is a drier, firmer cheese. This cheese melts well because of its water content is lower than that of fresh mozzarella.
