A hard sheep cheese, matured for at least 5 months, enriched by the flavour of black pepper grains dispersed in the mixture.
It is a pecorino that is made only from milk of Sardinian pastures, rennet, salt and black pepper grains. We produce it in large 15 kg wheels, in baskets, with pale yellow striped rind. The paste is white, firm and compact, with the colour of pepper grains fading into that of the mixture.
The scent is full and pleasant. The almost spicy flavour of ripe pecorino, with the typical taste of Sardinian sheep milk, goes well with black pepper taking its spicy notes. It is a delicacy to be enjoyed in slivers, flakes or cubes, to accompany homemade bread, carasau bread, guttiau or other tasty baked goods. In cuisine it can give an extra note to cheese pasta, in flakes or cubes it can be a new and different touch to salads.
