Antico Mugello is an Italian, sheep’s milk cheese
that is produced by the Il Forteto Cooperative in the Tuscan town of Mugello, Made from pasteurized milk, it is aged for about
two months and develops into a cheese that is semi-hard in texture and straw colored in appearance. Similar in the way
that Rossellino is made, the rind is rubbed with tomato concentrate, adding an element of complexity to its flavor is both
rustic and slightly sweet. The cheese is fairly dense and nutty with salty undertones.
