Sardegna’s best known cheese, Fiore Sardo, is made with raw sheep’s milk and coagulated with lamb rennet. The dry land contributes to a characteristic piquancy in the Sarda sheep’s milk, giving the cheese a deep sense of terroir. The rustic brown wheel has a somewhat granular texture and robust flavor. It is carefully smoked, adding another layer of complexity without overwhelming the palate.
It is wonderfully rich in flavour: nutty, sharp, sheepy, with caramel sweetness, salty tang and a hint of fruit. The spicy flavour of the cheese intensifies depending on the length of maturation.
Shaved over salads or on its own, grated. Less aged cheese pairs well with young red wines such as Cannonau di Sardegna DOC, while matured version could be served with Malvasia di Bosa or Moscato di Sorso Sennori.
Pasteurized sheep's milk, rennet, salt. Rind colored with titanium dioxide
