There are many excellent Pecorinos out there for you to choose from; this one stands out, for its rind is rubbed with oil and the cheese is aged in wine barrels, cushioned by walnut leaves. This special treatment imparts delicious yet unidentifiable flavors to the flaky, oily, semi-firm paste. It's buttery, aromatic, woodsy, and nutty, but there's something else going on, too. It's a delicious mystery, made real by the art and craft of cheesemaking. Pasteurized sheep's milk; made in Pienza, Italy. Second-day shipping required. Approximate weight 8oz.
