Aging Time: Around 60 Days

Crema di Roma is a pure sheep's milk cheese produced in the Lazio region of Italy. The name literally means the "cream of Rome" and was given this name by Guiseppe Lopez, one of the finest producers of Pecorino Romano, for its light texture and sweet flavor. It is a younger cheese than Pecorino Romano and as a result is lighter and softer on the palate, making it more suitable as a table cheese than as an ingredient for a dish. In addition to its traditional form, it also has three other varieties:

1) With Black Pepper
2) With Red Pepper
3) With Truffles
