The sweet, silken texture of this cheese slowly gives way to a sharp, zesty flavor with a brittle texture.
An Italian best seller, Pecorino Toscano is aged for an additional three to four months by the cheese masters at Il Forteto in Tuscany. Pecorino Toscano Stagionato DOP is created from locally collected sheep's milk during September and June. As it ages, the cheese loses its milky white color and takes on a hay-colored, ivory hue. Pecorino Toscano Stagionato DOP is perfect plums and peaches or for chunking into romaine and dandelion green salads. Of course, it’s fantastic served as part of an antipasto tray.
