Pecorino Brigante

Brigante is a sheep milk cheese from the Italian island of Sardinia. Manufactured on the north of the Island, this pecorino cheese is semi-soft in texture with a pale, ivory color. Also known as Dolce Sardo, it is eaten all over Sardinia where it is known for the sweetness of the ewe's milk from which it is made.  

Matured for only three weeks, this young cheese has a marvellous creamy texture, that is smooth, moist, and fairly elastic. Very mild and pleasing, it has a buttery richness that is balanced by an unusual lemony, citrus undertone. Pecorino Brigante is easygoing guest whose company is a delight.
