LOCATELLI | SKU: ITC-126
Locatelli is a brand name of cheese and Pecorino Romano is a variety of cheese. The Locatelli family began producing Pecorino Romano over 500 years ago in the Lazio region of Italy. Today, Locatelli Pecorino Romano is considered to be one of the finest Pecorino Romano's available. It is unique in quality because it is hand-crafted from 100% pure sheep's milk which is aged over 9 months at a minimum. The result is a spicy and sharp, dry cheese that is perfect for grating. We like to cut up some small pieces and enjoy it as a snacking cheese, accompanied with traditional Italian antipasti and even artisan Italian honey and compotes.
There's more to this central Italian region than the iconic ruins of Rome -- ancient villages abound in its lush countryside, and port towns on the Tyrrhenian sea hold a fascinating history of their own. Lazio is famed for its pork products, and its celebrated dishes include guanciale and spaghetti alla carbonara.
The Locatelli family has been producing Pecorino Romano cheese for over 200 years. Through an unwavering commitment to tradition and craft, Locatelli is able to deliver a product of unrivaled quality. Carried by fine restaurants, supermarkets, and delicatessens, Locatelli has earned the trust of cheese lovers the world over.
