Given its aging period of at least two months (in some cases extended to one year) Pecorino Sardo Maturo DOP is our most aged Pecorino cheese from the Italian island of Sardinia. Compared to its fresher version (Pecorino Sardo Dolce) it presents a bolder flavor accompanied by fruity notes, a little touch of spice, and a subtle acidic after taste. Its firm structure makes it ideal to either be consumed by itself or grated over your favorite pasta dish.
Every one-pound order of Silano Pecorino Sardo Maturo DOP is hand-sliced straight from the wheel, weighed, and vacuum-sealed for freshness.
Pecorino Sardo Maturo DOP also provides high value of Omega 3 and Omega 6 because of the special characteristics of the Sardinian pastures. Perfect pairings for this cheese are bold red wines and Italian pasta cuts of all kinds, especially with meat-based sauces.
