Bucaro Pepato 

Bucaro Pepato                                     Ewe’s Milk                                             Lazio, Sardinia

Pecorino is a hard, salty Italian cheese, suitable primarily for grating, made out of sheep’s milk (the Italian word pecora, from which the name derives, means sheep). It is produced exclusively from the milk of sheep raised on the plains of Lazio and in Sardinia. Produced in Sardinia, this cheese has existed for centuries. It has received the D.O.P. seal and is rightfully one of Italy’s most prestigious traditional cheeses. The peppercorns are added at the end to give it a little spice.

Wine Pairing: Traminer or Shiraz
