The word for sheep in Italian is "pecora" - hence the name of one of Italy's most popular dairy products. Since 1986 it is now protected with a DOP certification (Protected Destination of Origin). Pecorino Toscano is sturdy and nutty with a hint of salt and underlying savory and sweet flavors that intensify with age just the same as local wine - the more it matures the better it gets!
