Pecorino Tinivello (sheep’s milk cheese)

It’s one of the most important products of our selection since 25 years.

It is produced with pasteurized milk of sheep picked up by the shepherds situated in the country that goes from the center  oriental part of the lake of  Bolsena  until Orvieto- lake of Corbara- Baschi. 
It is produced  for us from  a small handicraft creamery  from which we already store it from fresh ( around 30 days) out brine and we actually maturing it in underground places to over one year. The technique is very simple: to position the forms above spruce’s aces and to make a constant maintenance of  oiling.
