Pecorino stagionato in foglie di noce cheese
Pecorino stagionato in foglie di noce is made from pasteurised ewes' milk from the Sardinian breed of sheep in the Tuscan province of Siena, mainly in the territory of Montefollonico. The milk is filtered and subjected to coagulation (with ferments and calf rennet), then the curds are cut to the size of a grain of corn. They are transferred into moulds and allowed to drain. The cheeses are then dry-salted and subjected to two stages of maturation, the second of which takes place for at least 90 days in earthenware jars with walnut leaves. The flavour is intense, with a hint of tannin and has the characteristic aroma of walnut leaves. It comes in round shapes with flat faces 12 to 16cm in diameter, and has a slightly wrinkled beige rind. The height of the sides is 5 to 12cm, the interior is grainy and is various shades of pale yellow in colour. It weighs between 1 and 1.5 kg.
