I' Rugoso

I' Serbo is a raw sheep's milk pecorino aged for over 300 days due to which its surface is covered with natural moulds. But beneath lays a paste that is rich in flavour with complex, aromatic sensations. In fact, the rare fermentation process makes the pate even more creamier with age. The cheese is best enjoyed with a full-bodied red wine.
