Pecorino Crotonese Aged

Item #: 5531

Aged Crotonese Pecorino Cheese. A sheep's milk cheese has famous pecorino flavor, sweet and salty. Like most ewes milk varieties, its surface is a bit oily due to natural oils in milk.
Pecorino Crotonese looks a lot like Pecorino Toscano and one could be forgiven for mixing them up; however, in addition to being produced in different regions of Italy, they each have their own flavor profiles. Sure they are both semi-firm aged sheep's milk cheeses, but Crotonese has more "sheepiness" and citrus zing than similarly aged Toscano. This nutty wheel has a richness and tang reminiscent of sun-dried tomatoes. Artisanally-produced from January to June when the sheep's milk is at its peak in flavor and yield; aged in wicker baskets. Pasteurized; made in Sardinia and Lazio.
