Pecorino Maschio Organic Sheep Cheese

Our popular Pecorino Maschio is a sheep’s milk cheese that boasts a sweet and intense flavor layered with hints of honey, dried fruits, butter and mature fruits. This savory and succulent cheese is made organically in Tuscany using traditional methods that give this Pecorino its refined taste.

Fattoria Lischeto matures this hard cheese for a minimum of 10 months with it getting a spicier flavor as it ages. They follow and develop Italian traditions of sheep breeding and will only use milk from their own farm. The milk is heated to exactly 104F before lactic ferments and rennet are added and it is this precision that ensures each round of cheese is as sumptuous as the last.

This delicate cheese’s versatility makes it enjoyable with many things, but we think it’s particularly tasty with a glass of sparkling wine! It is delicious to eat on its own with some Tuscan bread or it can add an interesting flavor twist when paired with fresh fruit, pickles or compotes.

This intriguing Pecorino Maschio is one of the many fine cheeses produced by Fattoria Lischeto, which was founded in the mid-80s with the desire to blend art and culture with farming.
