Extra Aged Pecorino from Reggio Emilia Apennines
There are cheeses that have different flavours depending on the Italian region they come from. When you say Pecorino, you can almost take an imaginary tour around the Italian boot.
Pecorino Romano, Pecorino Sardo, Pecorino Toscano, Pecorino Siciliano, and then onwards to the likes of Pecorino Crotonese, di Filiano, di Picinisco, delle Balze Volterrane. You might think that every corner of the country has its very own Pecorino. And perhaps it does. Different shapes, sizes and ageing, but one mission: excellence.
In the Reggio Emilia Apennines, the history of Pecorino cheese began even before the year one thousand. It all started in the sheep farms of the Byzantine people, and continues to the present day, gaining the knowledge that comes with progress without ever sacrificing authenticity. Fresh or aged, our Emilian Pecorino not only will delight you with its taste, but it will surprise you with its many nuances, from the most delicate to the most complex.
Made from whole sheep's milk and aged for a minimum of 12 months up to a maximum of 24 months, the texture is typically floury, the colour is golden and its flavour is very intense. Perfect if you love strong flavours. For an unforgettable aperitivo we suggest pairing this Pecorino with dried fruit (perhaps some nuts), our sweeter jams or even acacia and chestnut honey.
