The third and most mature of our plain Pecorinos from Tuscany. ‘Nero’ refers to its black rind and indicates a maturity stage of 4-6months. Only slightly more yellowy than the younger Pecorino Rosso and already quite crumbly, the distinctly herby taste of wild thyme and sage has intensified.
What with? A wonderful dessert cheese Pecorino Nero likes the company of a fine Port. It is very enjoyable on a Flavoured Cracker like Rosemary or Fig.
