Pecorino di Rocca & Chili


Pecorino di Rocca is a fresh sheep's milk cheese with crushed red chili peppers included in the curd, creating surprising aromas and flavors.

Mild and tangy table cheese with a bit of spice that does not overwhelm and works perfectly with our Amourette Chardonnay

Pecorino di Rocca is a delicious cheese made in the Tuscan tradition of cheese making. This classic pecorino is made using fresh pasteurized sheep milk following an ancient artisan Tuscan recipe. The paste, dense and flaky, is not grainy on the palate, but melts on the tongue.

Quick Quesadilla Recipe

Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Add flour tortilla. Cover half of the tortilla with one slice of Mild Provolone and one ounce of Peperoncino. Fold tortilla over and heat on both sides until cheese is melted and tortilla starts to brown. Repeat with remaining tortillas and cheese. Serve sliced quesadillas with fresh salsa. Add shredded chicken, pork or beef to the filling for a heartier offering. Serve with a glass of Amourette Chardonnay or for a red wine try Embrace Grenache.
