Aged pecorino cheese is a cheese made from sheep’s milk without preservatives. Seasoning 8-10 months. Weight about 3.5/4 kg.
This cheese is made with pasteurized sheep’s milk, processed WITHIN 24 hours of milking and is, to the taste, slightly spicy.
This seasoned pecorino cheese is a product that, for the realization of the forming, still uses wooden bands, as the old shepherds used to do as a tradition. The seasoning, as a tradition, takes place in a humid environment, where the cheese, during a period of up to a year, is aged and also thanks to the environment, creates an enveloping taste.
The pasta of the aged pecorino cheese is yellow / straw yellow and thanks to the use of a “strong rennet” the flavor is enhanced and takes on spicy notes.
The use of seasoned pecorino cheese on the table
