Italian Sheep Cheese Fiore Sardo 1 lb.
Fiore Sardo wheel - sheep's milk hard cheese, cut cheese - 1 lb/454 gr, Italy.
Sheep are very important to Sardinia, the island north of Sicily off the Italian coast. The landscape there is dotted with sheep everywhere you look. The sheep found on Sardinia are from ancient stock and live in the wild. Fiore Sardo is a straw-colored cheese with a brown rind. The Italian word Fiore means Flower. Thus this cheese is named the "Flower of Sardinia." A bit more forceful than Pecorino Toscano, a famous sheep's milk cheese from Tuscany, this Sardinian pecorino has a slightly salty flavor and a long finish. The Pecorino cheese is hard and grainy and has a wonderfully rich flavor, with caramel sweetness, salty tang and a hint of fruit.
Compliments: Can be enjoyed unadorned at the table or used to liven up a simple pasta dish. Makes a memorable pesto.
Appropriate wines: Brunello.
