Our Pecorino Rosso has a rich, deep flavour which lingers on the palate.
Pecorino cheese is one of the oldest cheeses we know. Several ancient Roman scholars including Plinny the Elder and Virgil made references to cheese production techniques which were very similar to how we make Pecorino today. They say that an army marches on its stomach and the Roman legionnaires famously took Pecorino cheese with them on their travels as it had a high nutritional value and a long shelf life.
This cheese is beautiful as part of a mixed cheeseboard and it is simply wonderful when grated into pasta dishes. When pairing cheese with wine the theory is to always try to find products from the same area. This particular Tuscan cheese works beautifully with a Chianti from the same region.
