Pecorino Magnifico. Minumum weight 240g
This year old ewe's milk cheese is available for a few months over the winter and is always a best seller. The whole wheels weigh a massive 13kg (a lot for sheep's cheese!) so the cheese stays soft and sweet despite its long ageing. The flavour is sweet but still complex and it makes an excellent companion to the other seasonal greats such as Stilton or Roquefort
It is the pinnacle of Emilio's production and he is always excited to send it to us in time for Christmas each year. Delicious served with Paolo Mencarelli's Fig Salami which is also made in Le Marche.
Unpasteurised sheep, traditional rennet, starters, salt
