Pecorino Foglie di Noce Sold by the pound
Pecornio Foglie di Noce is a pressed sheep's milk cheese from Tuscany. While aging, the wheels are wrapped in walnut leaves and rubbed daily with olive oil, imparting a tremendously satisfying flavor and hint of black walnut. Hearty and rustic, Pecorino Foglie di Noce is visually striking, versatile, and absolutely delicious.Carefully tucked between layers of walnut leaves in a wooden barrel, this pecorino is left to mature for two to four months. The light and crumbly paste that emerges melts in your mouth and ushers in the milky, nutty, and herbaceous flavor of the cheese. This raw milk delight pairs wonderfully with a Valpolicella or similarly fruity Italian red. This cheese is also wonderful when paired with a crisp, dry Italian white wines, Sauvignon Blancs, or light to medium-bodied reds. Shipping 2 days air.
