PECORINO AGED IN CAVE
Pecorino Stagionato di Grotta (Aged in Cave) is a cheese aged in limestone caves. The aging of Pecorino in the cave is an ancient technique developed mainly in central Italy.
In the days when there were no refrigerators, to maintain a good temperature during their maturation, the cheeses were placed in natural caves. Later it was discovered that the particular microclimatic conditions of the cave were able to give the cheese its typical and unique characteristics.
Pecorino di Grotta Stagionato is produced in Tuscany, according to an ancient tradition where artisans of the past created typical cheeses, famous all over the world.
This type of cheese has a thin crust that encloses a soft and sweet interior, with notes of dried fruit. A pecorino that is characterized by a strong and savory taste.
It is produced with sheep's milk in which it contains all its rich and decisive flavor. The thin crust matured in the cave covers a delicate and sweet interior with flavorful ripe notes of dried fruit. Unmissable in the perfect cutting board, it is fabulous accompanied with crusty bread to soak up its structure. It is also superb with acacia honey and fig jam. Accompany it with a glass of Tuscan red wine, such as a Chianti Classico. It is an elegant, exceptional cheese.
