Pecorino Toscano DOP is produced with sheep’s milk from grazing lands in Tuscany, Italy and bordering areas. These regions are defined and regulated by the D.O.P. certification. This cheese is packaged and distributed according to stringent guidelines and regulations.
Pecorino Toscano has a golden rind, a firm texture, and a nutty flavor. It pairs particularly well with pears, figs, honey and jams. The best complement of this cheese is a good Tuscan red wine like a Chianti Classico, a Morellino di Scansano or a Brunello di Montalcino.
D.O.P. is a guarantee that the food was made by local farmers and artisans, using traditional methods. D.O.P. recognition is followed by a strict set of guidlines. Every step from production to packaging is regulated. Demoninazione di Originie Protetta – Protected Designation of origin
