Gran Pecorino is Pinna’s “Gran Riserva” Pecorino, a cheese subjected to a long specific ageing process (from 18 up to 24 months). The result is a beautiful sheep’s cheese, yellow in color. It is not too salty, with an almost sweet finish. The grainy, crumbly consistency reminds some other famous Italian DOP cow’s milk cheeses, but the unmistakable sheep’s milk fragrance is definitely the added-value, which makes it unique.
1.Great for a delicate “cheese and pepper” pasta, for veggies risottos and pasta with Pesto.
2.Topped with balsamic vinegar cream and accompanied by Parma Ham or Mortadella.
3.To be eaten as is or topped with blueberry or red fruits jam.
4.Pairs well with meditation wines.
