The cheeses are cylindrical in shape and up to a kilo in weight. The period of ripening is brief and the soft, yellow rind surrounds a white or yellowish body which is soft in texture and mild in flavour. Both artisanal and industrial production are common.
The List of Italian cheeses includes more than a dozen entries under the heading Caciotta.
