Pecorino Stagionato w/ Whole Black Pepper

(Il Forteto) - 1 lb

In the farming town of Mugello near Florence and Tuscany, Il Forteto makes some of Italy's finest specialty cheeses."Pecorino" signifies sheep's milk and "Stagionato" indicates that this specialty is aged for three months. The aging gives the cheese a firm texture and a nutty and slightly herbaceous flavor. It has whole black peppers that lend a spicy kick, but nothing too overwhelming to this already wonderful cheese.

Producer: Il Forteto

First settled in the Florentine town of Bovecchio in 1977, the Forteto farmer's cooperative creates delicious Italian fare of a remarkable variety. From cheese and Chianina beef to apples and extra-virgin olive oil, Il Forteto is dedicated to the common cause of quality, sustainable agriculture.

Region: Tuscany

The Tuscan reputation for fine cuisine is well deserved. In addition to stunning renaissance art and architecture, beautiful rolling landscapes and coastal retreats, this fertile region of central Italy is also home to some of the country's best wine, olives, fresh vegetables and savory meats.

Pecorino stagianato is a feast for the taste buds. The cheese itself, truly a wonder is enchanced with just the right amount of black peppercorns to give it that extra special dance on the tongue. One of my favorites.

Could not recommend this delicious cheese more. Whole black peppercorns infused within the delicious Pecorino make it pop with an exciting bite to the creamy taste of the cheese itself - one of my favorites.
