Ovinforth is a Sardinian mixed milk blue cheese of pasteurized sheep and cow's milk from Thiesi.

After 30 days of ageing, the same penicillium of French Roquefort is added to the cheese, after which the cheese is seasoned at least 60 days in a cave to mature its blue/brown veins.

Ovinforth is mellower and less salty than the Roquefort that inspired it. It is rindless, with a firm creamy texture. It is nutty, buttery and slightly sweet in aftertaste, with the blue giving it strong flavour that is slightly piquant and aromatic. 

This version has pistachios added throughout the cheese. Sold in 200g portions.
