Pecorino di Fossa Cheese
An intense aroma and a strong flavour are the main features of this excellent Pecorino Fossa Cheese. Its special seasoning, which occurs precisely in special underground pits, gives it a unique taste, rich and powerful, which goes well with an Marche Style appetizer made of cured meats and cheeses, perhaps accompanied by a sweet jam, to create a pleasant contrast to the palate. Trust us, if you love aged cheeses, you will adore it.
