Pecorino Toscano

By: Cheese Secrets — Posted on September 10, 2010

Unlike other Pecorinos, this one is not aged. Pecorino Toscano is a young 100% sheep’s milk cheese, only about 40 days old when it arrives. Because it is a young cheese, it is somewhat discreet and very mild. As the cheese first hits your tongue, you detect a hint of Tuscan herbs, grass and wildflowers. The aftertaste it leaves on your palate is a wonderfully complex flavor that is hard to describe, but easy to enjoy.
