The Brigante, our most popular and loved cheese, in a different and spicy version.
It is produced only with whole sheep milk of Sardinian pastures. The paste is fresh and delicate, studded with black pepper grains. It is a young cheese, which matures in 20-25 days. It has a light yellow, striped rind, treated on the surface with a preservative that protects it from mould. The paste is cream-coloured and with slight holes. The black pepper grains that dot it give it flavour and aroma.
The taste is both fresh and strong. It is delicious in fresh salads or melted on a bruschetta. It is perfect to accompany croutons, carasau bread or other tasty baked goods and savoury snacks at an aperitif or with appetizers.
