Pecorino Erica

Produced by Romaniae Terrae, Pecorino Erica is an Italian cheese made with raw sheep's milk. It is a white cheese with a smooth texture, delicate mouthfeel and sweet flavour of sheep's milk with an aftertaste of fresh milk. The cheese is covered with heather flowers and then left to mature in a cold room at 8°C for about 60 days. This gives it an intense, floral scent of heather flowers.
