Product Description & Reviews
Pecorino Fiore Sardo DOP is a raw, hard cheese made from whole sheep's milk on the Italian island of Sardinia. The cheese which is said to have originated during Bronze Age was awarded DOP status in 1996. As per DOP standards, the cheese is made with milk sourced from a single flock of local Sardinian breed. The cheese, after a total aging of eight months, has a natural, golden-yellow to dark brown rind and a sour, damp smell. Upon slicing, the pate reveals a compact, dense, straw yellow or white colour. It is wonderfully rich in flavour, with caramel sweetness, salty tang and a hint of fruit. The spicy flavour of the cheese intensifies depending on the length of maturation. This matured version could be served with Malvasia di Bosa or Moscato di Sorso Sennori.
