This pasteurized Sheep's milk cheese from Tuscany sets the gold standard for pecorinos. Firm and flaky, this aged crunchy cheese has the desirable sheepy-nutty-grassy trifecta that is everything you want in an aged sheep's milk. Wild herbs and a hint of something citrusy linger on the tongue, brightening this nutty cheese. This precious Pecorino should be savored with a glass of Sangiovese.

Made 100% of ewe’s milk, They receive a red wax seal when they achieve a grainy texture, and overtures of wild herbs and lemongrass are delivered to the back of your tongue with delicate force.
