The Collection of milk
The raw material of Pecorino Romano from the careful selection of the herds that graze on the rich fields of the Roman, from October to June, with full respect for the natural cycle and the needs of the animal. These flocks carefully selected to ensure high organoleptic characteristics of milk then undergoes processing and transformation, because the final yield of cheese and its properties depend primarily on the type of feeding the sheep.
As the old adage: " The sheep makes what you eat! "
Just as centuries ago, salting of cheese is only "dry", or manually with sea salt, and not, as in many other situations, pickled by immersion in saline.
It is made by hand, by applying a kind of "massage" the form in the months of ripening and involves the use of specialist staff dedicated to "spoil" the Pecorino Romano, who has a special and pleasant spicy flavor, without being too salty to taste.
As was wisely sensed by the founder of the Group, Remo Brunelli, maturing "natural" inevitably spills on the quality of the final product. For this reason, the Group Brunelli abolished the cold storage of maturation, preferring a slow and delicate maturing within the ancient caves of tufa Etruscan-Roman (dating back to the first century. AC) located in the archaeological area of Prima Porta.
temperature and Moisture helps the cheese perfectly balanced to acquire a unique naturally mild aftertaste.
Seasoning is never less than 12 months and comes to 18 for the cheese matures, so that might be considered "Hard Cheese Aged", can be served at both scales (as Seal of fresh and delicious) and cheese.
