Hayloft

Hayloft is an Italian Tuscan Pecorian made from raw sheep milk and naturally aged in caves for 120 days on beds of hay. This result in firm, open cheese with a smooth, non-edible rind covered in hay. Flavours are strong, although they can change throughout the year depending on pasture and nutrition. Accompany the cheese with a red wine, such as Brunello di Montalcino.
