Pecorino Re Nero is an Italian, pasteurized, sheep’s
milk cheese. Produced by the Il Forteto Cooperative in the Tuscan town of Mugello, Pecorino Re Nero is semi-hard in texture
and ivory colored in appearance and is covered with a thin black wax coating. This cheese was traditionally made using
dark ash and olive sediment to create its coating. This cheese is aged for three months with a nutty and salty flavor and
a rustic and herbaceous finish.
