Nuvola di Pecora

Nuvola di Pecora is Italian for sheep’s cloud, and that perfectly describes this creamy, velvety sheep’s milk cheese. Each square is mild and sweet with subtle notes of sheep's milk flavor. Each bite fills the mouth completely, which is why the cheesemakers describe it as “like biting into a cloud.” The aromas aren’t pungent and remind you of fresh mushrooms and humid caves. This rustic style cheese won Gold at the 2010 World Cheese Championships.

Created by family-owned L’Antica Cascina, Nuvola di Picora is the result of decades of experimentation with sheep’s milk cheeses. In the early 2000s, the cheesemakers acquired established, centuries-old wine cellars that allow their cheeses to age in an optimal environment. At 30 days, Nuvola di Pecora is perfectly aged to create a thin rind and soft inner paste.

Try it as part of your next cheese or charcuterie board for some award-winning prestige at your next gathering. Jazz up any fresh summer salad with a little crumbled over the top. Nuvola di Picora pairs well with lighter, fruity wines like Pinot Noir or Chardonnay or even sparkling wines. Be sure not to overpower it with intense wines high in tannins. Beer lovers can pair this cheese with a light Saison.
