This Amatrice Rosso (red) from the Storico Caseificio of Amatrice is a shining example of quality Italian sheep’s milk cheese.
It is soft with a crumbly texture and a bright ruby red crust and pearl white paste. The Rosso is a young cheese aged for 4 months and possesses a strong and lively flavour.
Perfect flaked onto rocket and other green salads and wonderful combined with honey. Full-bodied, robust red wines are recommended.
