It is our "Gran Riserva", the most precious and refined cheese, a pecorino enjoyable at the table and to be grated, with a long maturing: minimum 18 months up to 24 months of maturing.
It is the fruit of years of research and patient trials. It is made only from sheep milk of Sardinian pastures, salt and rennet. We produce it in large wheels of about 14 kilos. At the end of aging, the rind is smooth and light brown in colour. The paste is hard and compact, antique ivory in colour, with the “crystal” consistency of very long-aged cheeses. You can separate the paste into flakes, it is crumbly when cut and it releases a full and intense aroma.
Its flavour is rich and complex, with the special taste of sheep milk made slightly spicy by aging. It is a splendid cheese enjoyable at the table or to be grated, which in chunks perfectly accompanies bread, red wine and cured meats. Grated on the spot, it gives a special flavour to pasta and rice dishes. In thin flakes it can make a salad special. But it can also be enjoyed in a thousand recipes or with walnuts, with a drizzle of balsamic glaze, with aged cured meats, with fresh fruit and a drizzle of Sardinian honey.
