Pecorino Toscano Fresco

A rare (semi-soft) version of an Italian staple.

Quick Overview:

Aromatic, creamy, well-balanced flavor that’s every cheese-lover’s dream.    

Quick Facts

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

The Flavor Experience

Typically, Pecorinos are a bit on the harder side— ideal for grating into a sauce or topping on pasta. Toscano Fresco changes all that in the best way possible. Aged for just the minimum number of days, each bit of this rich, aromatic cheese is a treat for all five senses. Glowing white color, soft to slice through, melts in your mouth flavor, and a rich perfumey smell, it’s a bite you’ll never forget. 

The Story

This special cheese comes from a small farm town in Tuscany known as Contigiano. Each selection comes from farms directly in the Tuscany, Umbria, or Lazio regions of central Italy and is handcrafted with the same attention to detail as traditional cheesemakers in the region. Each wheel is molded by hand, salted ever so slightly for the first 36 hours, and aged until flavors are sweet, mild, and unmistakably unique. 

Usage Tips

Add to your cheese plate alongside our Fig & Acacia Honey Jam and toasted rosemary crackers to bring out the cheese’s subtle fruity notes and herbaceousness.

  1. Same Cheese Different Flavor
    4

    Posted by Laurie on 12th Oct 2020

    One reason I didn't wish to purchase wedges vs a wheel: the wedges had distinctly different flavors. I assume one was aged differently than the other. I would prefer the option of purchasing a wheel.
