Pecorino Ginepro

Pecorino Ginepro is a remarkable Italian cheese made from highly selected sheep’s milk. It is full of flavor and possesses musty aromas that yield to a lingering fruity, woodsy finish. Hints of juniper and balsamic vinegar seep into this complex cheese’s white-bone paste and give this salty cheese a sweet juiciness.

The subtle, fruity flavors come from the juniper berries and Aceto Balsamic di Modena covering the cheese. The covered cheese ripens in wooden crates until it reaches a favorable maturing phase. During this time, it develops its unique dark burgundy exterior and chalky-white, grainy texture.

Pecorino Ginepro’s firm texture makes it ideal for shaving over salads, pastas and risottos. Shave it over a mushroom risotto to take advantage of its earthy tones. Accompany the meal with a rich Shiraz or iced-down dry French Vermouth. You can also serve it with Fernet and honey to tantalize the taste buds with a range of flavors.


Ingredients: Pasteurized Sheep's Milk, Rennet, Salt. Rind soaked in balsamic vinegar and juniper berries.
