Pecorino Toscano Stagionato DOP - sheep's milk hard cheese, cut cheese - 1 lb/454 gr, Italy.
This traditional Italian Pecorino Toscano is firm and dense in texture with complex nutty flavor. Unlike our other Pecorino's, this one is not aged. Pecorino Toscano is a young 100% sheep cheese, only about 40 days old when it arrives on our shores. Because it is a young cheese it is somewhat discreet, almost shy. As the cheese first hits your tongue, you detect a hint of Tuscan herbs, grass and wildflowers. The aftertaste it leaves on your palate is a wonderfully complex flavor that is hard to describe but easy to enjoy.
