Pecorino Duro - 1/2 Lb


Pecorino Duro is made in Sassari, Sardinia, which is the north-western part of the island. This is a large format pecorino made in a Parmigiano Reggiano style. It is aged from between 20-24 months and its flavors strike a balance between the salty, briny characteristics of a classic Sardinian pecorino and the sweeter, nutty more floral flavors of a well aged Parmigiano. The paste is dense and the texture is granular and crystalline but without being drying.
