Bio Pecorino Balze Volterrane
Pecorino Balze Volterrane Semistagionato BIO has a persistent smell and reminiscent of milk and thistle, with hints of herbs and flowers. The flavor at the first bite is sweet and savory at the end is slightly spicy, a feature that escalates with an increasing maturation period.
It is an ideal accompaniment to the great reds of the Tuscan tradition, even aged ones. A cheese suitable for the preparation of excellent dishes and interesting combinations such as with mushrooms and fish.
Its method of production, based on the use of rennet made from the flowers of the plant found in the fields, has given rise to peculiarities relating to its unexpectedly sweet taste for a pecorino.
The milk intended for producing the “Pecorino delle Balze Volterrane DOP”, must be produced and processed strictly in a well determined geographical area, which includes Volterra, Pomarance, Montecatini Val di Cecina, Castelnuovo Val di Cecina and Monteverdi.
The sheep are raised in semi-wilderness and spend most of their time feeding with fresh grass on the pasture, while supplementation is given by fodder and grain free from GMOs.
INGREDIENTS: raw and organic whole ovine milk, our selection of cow lactic ferments, thistle vegetable (Cynaracardunculus) rennet and salt.
