Pecorino in botte cheese
Pecorino in botte is a ewes' milk cheese produced in Fano, in the province of Pesaro and Urbino in the Marche region of Italy. After maturing for a couple of months, the cheeses are stored for a further 2 months amongst walnut leaves in oak barrels which still have the aroma of wine. They are then left to aerate for 10 days on wooden boards. The rind is dark in colour with imprints of the walnut leaves and the pale yellow interior has a fine texture.
