This Pecorino Diavoletta or Little Devil is a delicious young pecorino cheese with hot Sicilian red chillies.
It is made by artisan cheese maestri, the Petrucci brothers from quality milk from Ewe’s grazing on the amazing and lush slopes of Mount Terminillo in North Lazio-Umbria border. The cheese is aged for just 40 days in caves where it acquires its semi-soft texture and addictive mild creamy flavours. The addition of red chillies add an unforgettable finish with a subtle crescendo of warmth creating a wonderful contrast with the creamy nature of the pecorino.
The chilli pecorino makes a great appetiser diced with salami and vegetables and is a true classic to round off a meal, on its own with a glass of full-bodied red, with honey or pears or chutneys.
Produced by the Fratelli Petrucci, award winning artisan cheesemakers from the mountain areas between Lazio and Umbria.
Please note: this artisan cheese is hand made and weights may vary slightly.
