Pecorino Toscano Fresco

Although Pecorino is known best for it's grittiness as it ages, this particular Pecorino Toscano Fresco (fresh) is actually completely the opposite. Young (aged typically less than 30 days) and smooth, it has a flavor that is intense but borders on sweet. It's a DOP Toscano cheese, meaning that it can only be produced in the region of Tuscany under controlled process to keep standards high. Milky and tender, this is a top table cheese, especially as a dessert cheese. Marries well with white wine.

Product Reviews

Delicious great with pears for an appetizer or a second dish with vegetables or a salad you must try worth every penny!
Barbara from Falmouth, ME
I was so happy to get this! Went to Italy the end of Nov, and visited the Chianti Classico region, where the small estate winery we were at made their own Percorino Toscana, I was in heaven, this comes as close to what I had there and it cannot be found anywhere near me, thank you for having this available, will be reordering for sure!!
