Our Pecorino Sardo is made with organic unpasteurized raw whole sheep's milk from Pattada, Northen Sardinia. it's aged from 60 to 90 days. The texture, which can be white or slightly straw-coloured, is hard and compact with sparse holes and an aromatic fruity taste. When long-seasoned, its colour tends to be dark brown with a sharp and pleasantly spicy taste. It's an excellent table cheese, and the mature variety is also very good for grating.
The aroma is typical of sheep's cheese with notes of wool, dry wood and aromatic herbs. On the palate it's buttery with good notes of toasted hazelnuts.
