Full Shipping Details
This assortment compares and contrasts three Pecorino Toscano varieties which differ only by age. It is said that cheese has three main ingredients: milk, salt, and time. By sampling these three Pecorino Toscanos, you can taste for yourself the importance of that third ingredient. The fresh variety is aged for only 30 days, giving the cheese a mild, sweet character. The middle variety has been aged for three months; giving it more bite, but retaining some creaminess and innocence. The most aged variety is called Oro Antico Reserva, which has been aged for six months. This may not seem like a long time, but for a small cheese like Pecorino Toscano (its wheels are only five pounds each), the aging process moves quickly. Oro Antico is firm- textured and quite sharp and complex, especially when compared to its younger siblings.

All items are made from 100% sheep's milk. Assortment includes 3 7.5oz wedges of Pecorino Toscano.
