was awarded D.O.P. status in 1996. This pressed sheep milk cheese from Sardinia can be enjoyed on its own, or when well aged it can be used as a grating cheese. We have selected this cheese from a dairy that has been certified Organic by the USDA. This Pecorino Sardo is an especially delicious specimen of this ancient style of cheese, with the requisite minimum 40% butterfat held up with a pleasant tang. The flavor and texture are smooth so this cheese can be enjoyed immediately or kept indefinitely. With a mild aroma, this cheese has a pale straw-colored paste and is slightly open-grained, with a few tiny holes.
