Pecorino Stagionato w/Red Pepper - 8 oz. wedge


Il Forteto Pecorino Stagionato with Red Pepper is produced in the farming town of Mugello near Florence and Tuscany. A delicious sheep's milk Pecorino aged for three months (Stagionato). The aging gives the cheese a firm texture and a nutty, slightly herbaceous flavor, all complemented by the spicy kick of crushed red peppers.

    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.


    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.
