Pecorino Ginepro wheel - sheep's milk hard cheese, cut cheese - 1 lb/454 gr, Italy.
An unusual and arresting cheese made of raw sheep milk. Each 6 pound wheel of Pecorino Ginepro is soaked in an aromatic bath of balsamic vinegar and juniper before it is aged for a minimum of four months. The dark brown rind is created by the vinegar, though the lingering finish is kissed with gin-juniper rather than acerbic acid. Wrapped in paper, which contains moisture, the Pecorino cheese is always moldy, and benefits from a few hours 'breathing'.

Rustico - sheep's milk semi-soft cheese with black pepper, cut cheese - 1 lb/454 gr, Italy.
This savory Italian specialty is enhanced by the peppers rather than overwhelmed by it. The 30 day curing time in cellars results in a creamy texture with a mild, balanced flavor finishing with the reserved sting of the peperoncino pepper.
The milk used in producing this cheese is from small producers with no extra additives or hormones.
Served with crackers, it would also be a nice accompaniment to fruit such as grapes, berries or melons.

A hard aged sheep's milk Italian cheese wrapped in leaves, perfect with bread and red wine (and not at all like Pecorino Romano, another Italian sheep cheese most people are familiar with).

Since walnut leaves ripen just twice a year, this Pecorino cheese is available seasonally.
Compliments: Foglie di Noci pairs nicely with artichokes and raw vege... more »
