Cossu Pecorino Romano D.O.P. 200g

Pecorino is a term used to define Italian cheeses made from 100% Sheep's, animal rennet milk. Out of the four Pecorino cheeses that have received Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status, Pecorino Romano is one of the most ancient types of cheese as well as the most famous outside of Italy. Pecorino Romano can only be made on the islands of Sardinia, Lazio and in the Tuscan Province of Grosseto. All these varieties differ slightly from each other, depending on how much they have aged.

Pecorino Romano dates back to the Roman times (as the name suggests) when it was a part of the staple diet of soldiers at war. Today, the cheese is made using only traditional methods in the unique areas of origin. It is aged from 6 to 10 months resulting in a dry and granular texture and a strong taste.

Pecorino Romano is generally used as a sharper alternative to Parmisan . It is ideal for pasta and perfect with Cured Meats and Olives. We suggest pairing this cheese with oiling, oaky white wines or bold Italian reds.
