Pecorino Toscano Stagionato DOP - sheep's milk hard cheese - 1 lb/454 gr, Italy. This traditional Italian Pecorino Toscano is firm and dense in texture with complex nutty flavor. Unlike our other Pecorino's, this one is not aged. Pecorino Toscano is a young 100% sheep cheese, only about 40 days old when it arrives on our shores. Because it is a young cheese it is somewhat discreet, almost shy. As the cheese first hits your tongue, you detect a hint of Tuscan herbs, grass and wildflowers. The aftertaste it leaves on your palate is a wonderfully complex flavor that is hard to describe but easy to enjoy. Appropriate wines: Pecorino cheese goes best with Chianti (Sangiovese). Authentic Pecorino Toscano is name-protected by the Italian Government. This one is truly a special item.
