Fiore Sardo DOP is definitely the main product of Sardinian cheese-making tradition. It is still made with raw sheep’s milk sourced from a single flock of local Sardinian breed, located in some small mountain huts in Central Sardinia. After selecting the best cheese from the local shepherds, Pinna takes care of the delicate maturation and smoking process, that makes its fragrance so unique. After a minimum aging of 4 months (that can be extended up to 8 months), cheese comes in a natural, dark brown rind, which is polished with olive oil. Upon slicing, the pate reveals a compact, dense, straw yellow or white colour. Its rich, intense, spicy flavour intensifies depending on the length of maturation.
