Pecorino table and grating cheese; white or black coated crust; made from semi-raw milk; white color with compact tiny eyes. Hard savory and tangy cheese, intense and aromatic, tending towards spicy with aging. All forms are are engraved with the writing “Pecorino Romano”, the institutional logo, serial number, month and year of production! To enhance the taste, we suggest to pair with important, full bodied red wines such as Brunello di Montalcino, Cannonau di Sardegna or Carignano del Sulcis Rosso. This cheese is great alone; to start or finish a meal; a non-substitutable ingredient in many typical regional dishes!
