Pecorino Toscano DOP is an award-winning semi-hard cheese typical of Toscana. This classic sheep's milk cheese has to ripen for a minimum of 120 days, creating a well-balanced, elegant cheese that boasts a compact and ivory-colored paste.

Grate into pasta dishes with game sauces, or enjoy as part of an antipasto platter paired with Prosciutto Toscano DOP.

Offering the truest flavor of Maremma, Il Fiorino is a dairy farm that operates in the Southern Tuscan hills near the Mediterranean sea. The story of il Fiorino begins in the late 1700s, when the nomadic Fiorino family abandoned the practice of transumanza, the seasonal migration of sheep from Northern Tuscany toward the Maremma, to settle in Roccalbegna. Here, in 1957, the Fiorino family established a dairy farm dedicated to the production of Tuscan cheeses made with high-quality raw materials from carefully selected local flocks. Today, Il Fiorino incorporates its family history and traditions in the crafting of delicious, authentically Tuscan, cheeses following artisanal methods.
