Pecorino Ginepro Cheese

Woodsy and herbal with a fruity tanginess.

Quick Overview:

Flinty yet moist, dry and fatty. Ginepro is an aromatic, lush pecorino suited only for the table.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Italy
Milk Type/Treatment: Raw Sheep
Rennet Type: Animal

The Flavor Experience

Aromatherapy for the tummy and the soul. The scent that wafts from a wheel tickles the nose and immediately relaxes. Tasting Ginepro, too, provides a calming effect as the dry, flinty cheese suddenly turns creamy as it mixes with saliva.

The Story

As Parmigiano production took hold in the early 1900's many sheep farmers transitioned their herds to cows from sheep leaving very few pecorino producers in the area. Made by Paolo Farabegoli in Italy's Emilia Romagna region, Ginepro is a representative of the region's dwindled sheep herds.

Usage Tips

Serve with some iced-down dry French Vermouth or with Fernet and honey.

Your order is guaranteed to be handled with care and shipped with an eye toward ensuring the products arrive as fresh as possible. All of our perishables are packed in insulated, heat-resistant packaging with safe, re-usable ice packs. If you should also order dry goods, we neatly pack them around the other materials, enclosed in a sturdy, corrugated container.

It generally takes one business day to receive and process your order. Shipping speed selected at checkout applies to the time in transit only. The delivery clock starts once the package is picked up by our carriers, not once you submit your order, and there are times when our fulfillment team may hold certain orders to process and ship after the weekend in order to ensure product viability. Please note processing times may be extended during the holiday season.
