The aged golden rind pecorino cheese is Andrea De’ Magi’s king of pecorino cheeses. This memorable cheese is aged according to the most ancient Tuscan traditions for at least 150 days up to even 10 months. The cheese alchemist Andrea De’ Magi treats the rind of this pecorino with olive oil, both during and at the end of the refining period; thanks to the olive oil, the cheese acquires its golden colour, crowning it as king of pecorino cheeses. This product was patented and has since become the company’s flagship product.
Andrea De’ Magi is a very successful cheese affineur who is always on the lookout for new flavour combinations. He still is very rooted in traditions and uses natural and artisan processes for his cheeses, but, at the same time, he doesn’t dismiss modern technologies which help respecting the highest hygiene standards and always guaranteeing the best quality.
The aged golden rind pecorino has a delicate vegetal scent reminiscent of hay; it has a well-balanced and slightly spicy flavour. We suggest trying it as a starter or together with honey or jellies. It is a very versatile cheese: try, for instance, to scatter some pecorino shavings on a carpaccio. Its excellent sensory properties can satisfy even the most demanding palates and it was even used to create a new ice-cream flavour!
