PDO Pecorino Siciliano

Pecorino Siciliano DOP, also known in dialect as "Picurinu", is made from whole sheep's milk using traditional techniques that have remained unchanged over time.

It weighs between 4 and 12 kg and its length does not exceed 18 cm. Its rind is yellow in color and very rough to the touch due to the marks left by the basket.

The paste of the cheese is white and compact, and the amount of fat present can be determined with the eyes: the more oily substance that comes out when the cheese is cut, the higher the fat content and, consequently, the more intense the flavor.


Once the cheese has passed all the checks required by the European Community, it is marked with the words "Pecorino Siciliano DOP" (Protected Designation of Origin). Only Pecorino Siciliano aged between 3 and 18 months may bear the DOP label.
