Pecorino Romano

$15.99/LB
One of the very few Pecorino Romano cheeses still produced in the countryside of Rome; therefore, according to tradition, it is referred to as ''Genuine'' Pecorino Romano. A hearty, full flavored, pasteurized sheep's milk cheese produced in the village of Nepi, using the finest milk from sheep in the Lazio region. The milk, rich in fat and protein, is selected from small producers, analyzed regularly and has no additives or hormones. Handmade in large 65-pound wheels according to ancient tradition and still aged naturally in cellars, Fulvi is never as hard or dry as Pecorino Romano made in Sardinia. It has a bold, pungent flavor and is a cheese to be eaten, not just grated.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Cabernet Sauvignon

    Full-bodied with no shortage of flavor. This grape is grown in almost every climate, which means lots of diversity across bottles.

    Old World Cabernet: Earthy with aromas of leather, hay, and dark dried fruits. Sometimes a hint of eucalyptus or violet.
    Pair with: Cheese with flavor that can stand up to this big wine. Alpine style cheeses like Comte or Appenzeller and some sweeter blues like Bleu d’Auvergne would make a good match.

    New World Cabernet: Characterized by bold oaky flavors and high levels of tannins. These wines are about as full-bodied as you can get, very jammy with flavors of reduced fruit.
    Pair with: Sweet clothbound cheddar or a Grana style cheese like Parmigiano Reggiano or Podda Classico.

     

  • Wheat Beers

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit
