A cave dweller, tiny and annoying like all goblins and, above all, a thief through and through. He likes the food specialities of the Carnia region and he’s mad about dairy products. In fact Guriut the goblin was so intent on stealing the cream that … a pretty puema (girl) from Paularo trapped him under a wicker basket. Cunning as ever, he won her over by teaching her a recipe: that’s how the cjalçons of Carnia came into being.

The two parts are then assembled and bottled.
