Antico Mugello Pecorino - Sold by the Pound
This is a naturally sweet cheese that has been rubbed with tomato concentrate. With its delicate smell and full flavor, this cheese stands above the rest!
Pecorino Antico Mugello is a sheep's milk cheese aged for over six months. The crust is red from having been treated with a tomato concentrate, lending a hint of berry sweetness to the cheese. Beneath the edible rind lies a straw-colored interior full of natural energy. Special enzymes in the milk and its long aging process contribute to Antico Mugello's crackling, powerful flavor and delicate perfume. Made from pasteurized sheep's milk. The taste, slightly piquant, is due to particular enzymes present in the milk and to the length of the maturing time.
