The oldest pecorino cheese in Sardinia, dating back to the Bronze Age. The production takes place entirely on the island and involves the processing of raw sheep's milk. The DOP quality is guaranteed by the Consortium of Tutelage through the presence of the stamp on the cheese. Each stamp is unique and bears a progressive number with which you can trace the producer and the date of production. The minimum maturation period is about 3 months, which gives the cheese a hard paste and a strong and spicy aroma. It is recommended to taste it at the end of the meal, accompanied by sweet flavours such as persimmons, white grapes and fig jam.
Wine recommended in combination: Cannonau di Sardegna.
Selected pecorino cheese with a minimum maturation of two months.
Its peculiarity is found in the intensity of the taste and the scent of the paste, which reminds us of the living of the pastures and the Mediterranean scrub. The paste is compact, white and tending to straw yellow as the cheese matures. It is the table cheese par excellence, appreciated by those who are looking for an authentic pecorino with a marked taste. Excellent to enjoy with carasau bread, it proves to be a real speciality if cooked on the grill or in the oven.
It's a matured sheep's cheese for table or grater. The paste is hard, sometimes with some graininess and pleasantly spicy in the more mature forms, with a straw colour. The product is smooth in a brown rind. In its younger wheels, this semi-cooked sheep's cheese is made exclusively from whole sheep's milk from the production area.
The paste is white, compact or with sparse, tiny holes; it is tender and elastic with an aromatic flavour in young cheeses.
This “semicotto” cheese from Sardinia, can be enjoyed as an appetiser or as seasoning. It is made from full cream ewe’s milk and from kid goad rennet. The cheese itself is compact, white when fresh and as it matures it gradually changes colour to become light yellow.
When fresh it is soft and has a pleasant aroma. While in its mature state it has a delicious strong taste. It is basket shaped and its rind is brown in colour.
