Ciresa Pecornio Toscano DOP

Item #: 7114

Pecorino Toscano PDO is a round cheese, which has been granted the Protected Designation by the EU.  Its origins date back to the Etruscan civilization (700 BC). It is an aged, pure sheep’s milk cheese. Upon ageing, it develops a compact, straw-coloured paste, with a brown rind.  With age, the cheese starts to crumble and it acquires its identifiable texture and flavor. Its sweetness is perfectly balanced by typical bitter and intense overtones.
