Moliterno di Pecorino is an Italian sheep’s milk cheese with full, rounded flavors and a firm texture. This Sardinian cheese, aged five to eight months. It’s rubbed with olive oil several times while it ages, to promote a rind that will help prevent too-rapid moisture loss. The interior is firm and a little crumbly, with a golden hue that darkens near the rind. In the center of the wheel, the cheese smells sweet, with faint caramel notes.
Enjoy with a robust Italian red wine, pears, and truffle honey.
