“PISTACCHINO” – Pecorino with pistachios
This cheese is made exclusively from sheep’s milk from Italian farms where pieces of pistachio are added to the curd during processing. The unique and different processing technique from all other producers is the secret that helps to make this cheese so different from all other flavoured cheeses on the market.
Taste it, and you’ll see.
On request, it is also possible to have it in the smallest 400-gram format, instead of 800-gram, like this one.
