Among the most traditional and appreciated matches we can find that of truffle and cheese, a combination which creates an unparalled marriage of flavours.
“Pecorino” is a sort of umbrella term, so it can be used to indicate any cheese produced with sheep’s milk. Indeed, in Italy there are many varieties of Pecorino cheese, all typical of certain areas or sheep breeds. In southern Italy, it is better known as “cacio”.
Its origins date back to ancient times - in some reports it is described as one of the most popular cheeses at Lorenzo de Medici’s banquets - whereas the PDO label was obtained in 1992.
The guidelines establish all stages of production; from the milking to the aging. The milk must be sheep milk and come from the areas of origin: Tuscany and some neighboring municipalities of Lazio and Liguria.
The aged Pecorino Toscano is a mature cheese, with an aging period of at least 120 days and up to one year; cheese makers use only calf rennet and salt it just for one day.
The aged Pecorino Toscano has a cylindrical shape, a thin yellow crust that contains an irresistible soft and sweet yellow paste with a fragrant taste, intense and slightly spicy. Try it!
The aged Pecorino Toscano is suitable for an adult audience, looking for the aromas and fragrances which develop with the aging of the product and which make it a "meditation" cheese. In Italy, aged Pecorino Toscano is generally eaten in slices, with honey, jams or truffles, but it can also be eaten in flakes, often accompanied by red wines. It can be enjoyed grated as well, on many traditional dishes, especially on pasta.
