Special pecorino cheese aged with pistachios in the rind, which give it a unique and characteristic taste.

This cheese is produced in Tuscany, according to an old tradition where cheese-makers have always produced typical and world-famous cheeses. Pecorino is a generic term that indicates those cheeses produced with sheep’s milk and in Italy, in fact, there is a wide variety of pecorino cheeses characteristic of different regions. Tuscan Pecorino has become a symbol of Italian excellence. Its origins date back to the Etruscans and the Romans, and traces of it can be found in pre-Christian times under the name of ‘cacio’; a term still used today in the region of origin. It appears for the first time in a document by Plinio il Vecchio, who describes it as a ‘fine cheese’, in 1400 it was known as ‘cacio marzolino’ and, according to historical sources, this cheese was particularly appreciated at noble banquets and was one of Lorenzo il Magnifico’s favourites. Its unique and characteristic flavour tells an ancient story of culinary traditions that continues to this day under the banner of quality and links with the territory.

The aging in a pistachio crust gives this cheese a taste that is perfectly balanced between the sweet and typical notes of pecorino and the more savoury ones of pistachio. It has a compact, elastic, straw-coloured paste and a rind covered with pistachios. The rind is not edible. Made exclusively from pasteurised Italian sheep’s milk, salt, rennet, selected milk enzymes and oil.

Excellent for a quick and tasty snack or for a more substantial bite accompanied by a warm focaccia and a soft salamino rustico. Ideal for a mixed board, accompanied by jams or honey and taralli. Also try the combination with mixed salads or vegetable gratin. We recommend pairing this cheese with a glass of structured red wine from Val d’Orcia or a cold beer. The product is delivered vacuum-packed and wrapped with string, also suitable for gift-giving
