Toscanello (Pecorino Toscano or Tuscan pecorino) is an Italian cheese made from sheep's milk, primarily produced in the Tuscany region of Italy. Pecorino Toscano is made exclusively from sheep's milk, adhering to traditional Italian cheese-making methods. It is a versatile, mild cheese with a sweeter and less salty flavour than Pecorino Romano and Pecorino Sardo. Pecorino Toscano is aged from a few months to over a year. The ageing process can influence its flavour and texture. It is a semi-hard cheese with a smooth and creamy texture, making it suitable for slicing and grating.

It pairs well with Italian wines, fresh fruits, and crusty bread.
