Pecorino Sardo Vecchio di Fonni
Sardinian Pecorino cheese is so unusual, so unique and so good that it is considered impossible to copy and pairs perfectly with our Frolic Viognier.
Pecorino cheese is semi-hard and compact having a straw-yellow color with sparse holes. The crust is smooth with a white-pale yellow paste. Aromatic with hints of herbs the taste is strong and pleasantly spicy. Outside it shows to a classic dark brown color.
From the town of Fonni, the highest town in Sardinia, Pecorino artisanal sheep's milk cheese has a maturation period of more than four months; the shape is cylindrical with flat faces with straight sides; the crust is smooth, consistent, light brown.
