Pecorino Cheese Cacio Nero di Pienza is a typical cheese from Tuscany produced exclusively with 100% Italian sheep’s milk.

It is a semi-cured cheese with a maturation of about 60/70 days.

It is produced in Val D’Orcia and in the province of Siena. A semi-hard cheese with a white coloured paste. The taste is different from the classic pecorini, it is more delicate, dry and intense.

The black colour is used for the most cured cheeses.

How to enjoy it

It is a perfect cheese to be enjoyed plain, excellent if served with cured meats and other Tuscan cheeses. It is delicious for appetizers such as soufflés with Cacio di Pienza, for traditional recipes such as Pici with cacio e pepe or for variations of traditional dishes such as Cacio di Pienza fried with bread ! It can also be tasted diced to add flavour to salads.

The best wine to combine with this cheese is a medium to full bodied red wine such as a Barbera d’Asti DOC.

Production

This typical cheese is produced using only sheep’s milk from Italian farms. The milk is first pasteurised at a temperature of at least 72° and transferred into special tanks to begin the actual production process. Selected milk enzymes and rennet are then added. After the curd is taken, it is broken into lumps the size of a grain of corn. The whey is then separated from the paste using the so-called ‘falling’ method and is then placed in cylindrical moulds and manually pressed to compact the mixture. The product is then placed in a warm room at a temperature of about 30/35° for 6/10 hours. This is followed by salting by hand for about 15 hours and turning by hand 4 times to ensure that the salt is absorbed evenly. This is followed by the maturing phase where it is constantly checked and turned. After 60/70 days it is ready to be eaten.
