Product description

    Details

    Pecorino di Pienza Rosso is a mild flavoured sheep's milk cheese from Pienza in Tuscany. It is rubbed with tomato paste before being left to age for up to 6 weeks and it is this process that gives it its distinctive red rind.

     

    It has a delicate flavour, unlike the piquant taste usually associated with other pecorino cheeses.

     

    Try it....

    Try it with a glass of light red wine to enjoy its full flavour.

     

    ❆ How to Store

    Pecorino di Pienza Rosso needs to be refrigerated. We will wrap it in waxed paper, pack it in a foil-lined bag and protect it with an ice-pack. When you receive your parcel you should put the Pecorino di Pienza Rosso in the fridge leaving it in the waxed paper and bag - it will typically last for 2-3 weeks stored like this. At Christmas time (for deliveries after the beginning of December) we will vacuum pack the Pecorino di Pienza Rosso -  it will last 4-6 weeks unopened in your fridge. Once opened wrap in tin foil.
