Pecorino Toscano DOP Riserva Oro Extra mature
Estimated price per piece
A precious cheese aged over six months. The paste is hard and granulose,the taste is persistent but sweet and palatable, with variegated and well balanced flavours. Made of sheep's milk, this Pecorino is hand selected by Tuscan cheese makers to become Oro Antico. This Pecorino is transformed over the course of six months by the simple application of olive oil. Once the cheese is glazed with the olive oil it is placed in a stone cellar where it begins its journey to maturity. As the aging process continues olive oil is intermittently applied and the cheese begins to develop its hard texture and distinctive piquancy. Once fully mature the pecorino is of golden hue and has become Oro Antico or in other words ancient gold. The final flavor is that of earth, wild herbs, and citrus.
