Description:
Pecorino is a generic name given to Italian cheeses made from pure sheep’s milk. Each type is characteristic of a specific area and/or of a particular breed of sheep. Pecorino Romano has been made in the countryside around Rome for centuries, with production spreading (later) into Sardinia to keep up with demand in the export market.

Made between November and late June, when the sheep graze freely on the natural pastures, Pecorino Romano is much larger than other pecorino’s. It must be pressed and takes 8 to 12 months to mature, during which time it develops its characteristic flavour; saline with a fruity tang that steadily becomes more robust as it matures.
