Gourmet Sampling

 Pecorino al Pepe. Monnalisa. Salcis

From the gentle Tuscan hills a delicious cheese with black pepper.
The flavor of the cheese blends with the flavor of the black pepper,  creating an amazing aroma and taste. It’s made with fresh pasteurized sheep’s milk and it’s prepared with traditional methods, with the addition of selected enzymes.
Special to prepare starters, bruschetta, salads, to fill buns or simply enjoyed at the table with a glass of red wine.
Produced by Dairy Salcis, in the province of Siena, from sheep’s milk rigorously selected and processed according to the traditional method thus obtaining a very popular cheese.

Manzo Affumicato. Chiapella

Verzin® di vacca Occelli
A marbled cheese made from full cream cow’s milk. Its name echoes the famous marble of the Frabosa quarries, as the paste is white with green (“verzin” in the Piedmontese dialect) streaks. Creamy and spreadable, it has a strong flavour but with hints of fresh milk. Verzin can be paired with a good Piedmontese red, even young, but a good-bodied still white will also go well with it.
