Tuscan Pecorino PDO (100g) - Caseificio Manciano
Pecorino Toscano PDO is a classic fresh, soft paste sheep’s cheese, made from pasteurized sheep’s milk with the addition of selected indigenous cultures, rennet and salt. DOP (PDO)* certified.
The minimum aging is 20 days as required by the production regulations to affix the PDO mark in ink. It is eaten usually after 30-45 days, and its sweet and delicate flavor evokes the scent of Maremma and Tuscan pastures.
Today the Manciano Cheesemaking Factory produces about 435,000 wheels of Pecorino Toscano PDO annually, both fresh and aged, distributed in Italy and exported worldwide. Fresh Pecorino is known for its slightly straw-colored crust, white paste, tenderness and fragrant, distinctive flavour. If it could be described all in one word, it would be “sweet.” The aged product, however, has a crust ranging from yellow to deep yellow, a pale-yellow paste and a fragrant flavor, intense but never spicy.
*DOP (PDO) is short for Denominazione di Origine Protetta (literally 'Protected Designation of Origin'). This certification ensures that products are locally grown and packaged, using traditional method.
