Pecorino has a gorgeously nutty, full-bodied flavour with playful touches of sweetness and grass. This paired with delicate slithers of truffle offsets the richness of the sheep’s milk to produce a truly intense cheese: firm, sharp and spicy with a rich truffle finish.
Used with real fresh truffle, the flavour here is complex, sophisticated and playful. You’ll be getting a mixture of flavours that perfectly balance together.
Get the port out!! Or try with a lovely full bodied red like our Miss Harry Shiraz!
About the Maker
A classic Italian cheese made in the traditional way by family firm Villecco, in the heart of Sardinia. Made using only the finest sheep’s milk from the island, this classic hard Pecorino style is then aged for a minimum of five months to give it the pleasant spiciness and sharpness associated with the best Pecorinos. It’s made using 4% real fresh truffle, which is added at the beginning of the cheese making. There are no truffle essences, flavourings or oil used here, just real fresh truffle!
