Pecorino aged in a crust with straw and hay is a seasoned and refined pecorino, in accordance with the Tuscan dairy tradition, in straw and hay. It is, in fact, a typical Tuscan cheese that is matured wrapped in hay, a process that enriches it with the scents of nature, and in straw, which improves its maturation. Made with 100% Italian sheep’s milk.

It has a straw yellow color, a strong aroma and a flavor rich in nuances. You can recognize hints of straw in the parts closest to the rind and its scent is reminiscent of the typical mowing of hay in June. The rind of this cheese is not edible.

The product is delivered vacuum-packed and wrapped with string also suitable for gift giving.

How to enjoy it at its best

Pecorino aged in a crust with straw and hay is excellent when paired with jams and honey or cut into thin flakes to accompany mixed salads, meat carpaccio or for baked pasta. Also try it grated for a pasta dish or baked vegetables. Coarser cut is perfect to making a tasty sandwich with, for example, porchetta, honey and walnut cream. Do not miss the combination with mixed cold cuts such as cured ham, coppa or Felino salami for an aperitif with a glass of red wine from Val d ‘Orcia or a sparkling wine.

Background

With its characteristic rounded shape, this pecorino has an artisan history that dates back to decades ago. Its production can be found among the Tuscan artisans who used straw and hay daily to preserve cheeses. The peasants matured their cheeses in straw and hay in response to the need to preserve excess dairy production over time. In fact, this technique allowed to protect the cheeses from insects and also from molds. Although today these conservation techniques are no longer necessary, this custom continues to be carried out as it gives the cheese an intense and unmistakable aroma and taste. It also allows you to obtain a soft texture and a velvety texture on the palate since the leaves retain more moisture inside.
