Il Foreto Pecorino Toscano DOP Stagionato is a semi-hard table or grating cheese produced in Tuscany, Italy, exclusively from sheep's milk. It has a yellowish rind with a very firm centre, and a flavour that is fragrant and savoury. This superb cheese is protected by the DOP, a mark of protected origin.
This distinctive Italian cheese makes a fragrant addition to your table or cuisine. As it is a hard cheese, it will behave similarly to Parmiggiano cheese. Delicious grated over pasta or as part of an antipasto platter.
IL Forteto's farmers cooperative was founded in 1977 and it settled in the farm of Bovecchio, in the municipal district of Barberino di Mugello, Florence. The cooperative was chosen because this kind of association doesn't aim at piling up profits, but at offering adequate life conditions to the workers and producing the finest quality cheeses in the area.
