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.
