Pecorino Toscano is an Italian sheep's milk cheese that is considerably milder than the Pecorino Romano. This particular Pecorino Toscano is made Val D'Orcia under strict supervision of the Consortium of Pecorino Toscano.
Fresh Pecorino Toscano is mild, and rather creamy, with some nutty hints. With age Pecorino Toscano becomes firmer and sharper, though it never approaches the sharpness and the saltiness of Pecorino Romano. It is a really nice cheese as an appetizer or on a cheese plate after dinner; a lot of taste and not very sharp. This gourmet cheese is aged for approximately 6 months and has a firm texture, a nutty flavor and hints of butterscotch.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
