Seemed an appropriate name for such an important cheese, infact with no offence to the Tuscans, on the label I have drawn Dante’s famous hooked nose beside that of the Sardinian sheep, as they are quite surprisingly similar!
This last creation is inspired by the traditional Cheddar and so likewise it is wrapped in linen and aged for a minimum of 8 months on wooden shelves.
It has a texture very similar to Parmisan, in that it tends to crumble and has a wonderful intense aroma.
Each form weighs around 6kg but we also sell in smaller pieces. Available mostly from November to April.
