“CROCCOLONE” – Big Pecorino Cheese aged RESERVE
Croccolone is a big sized reserve cheese; this means we sell it only after a minimum ageing period of one year, which at times can reach two years or more.This cheese is not always available; in fact we only produce it if the cheese we choose from is up to the standard we require for a reserve. Just like reserve wines, we pick only the best. The long ageing period may cause some superficial cracks on the cheese rind. These cracks may appear as a defect, but on the contrary it confirms that the cheese is made by hand, the process is artisanal rather than industrial.
The signs on the cheese show traces of the human hand, which produced and handled it including any errors.I
Pasteurized sheep MILK, live milk enzymes, kid rennet, salt. ALLERGENS: MILK and MILK protein
Perfect for aperitivo, antipasto with cold cuts, and as a dessert cheese. Great in the kitchen for carpaccio, risotto, pasta dishes.
Goes well with wines like Brunello di Montalcino, Nobile di Montepulciano, Sassicaia, Amarone, and other great wines.
