Gourmet Sampling

Pecorino Fortescuro. Monnalisa Salcis

Forte Scuro translates to ‘strong, dark’ – reflecting the sharp flavours and crumbly texture of this matured cheese rubbed with ash and olive oil during an extended maturation. Even though up-front this cheese is quite bitey, the finish is still well-balanced and grassy – characteristic of good Tuscan pecorino. This is a great cheese for anyone looking for a full-flavour that isn’t too salty or piccante.

Salame Crespone. Chiapella  

Raschera DOP. Beppino Occelli

The name comes from the Raschera Alpine lake located at an altitude of 2000 metres in the Maritime Alps. Beppino Occelli Raschera is a cheese produced from raw cow’s milk. After a minimum two-month ageing period it acquires a delicate flavour that becomes more intense over time.
