Back Forty Cheese - Verona Raw Ewe’s Milk Pecorino
Verona Percorino is a hard Italian inspired raw sheep milk cheese which is pressed and naturally aged on pine between 9 – 15 months. The rind is frequently cleaned and brushed with extra virgin olive oil, a process which prevents excessive moisture loss allowing Verona to retain a more subtle texture than Parmesan making it an ideal choice both on the table or grated.
Although subtle, the raw sheep milk and prolonged maturing provide a complexity of flavour – sweet and nutty with underlying earth tones.
Named after the quint town of Verona, which lies in the heart of Eastern Ontario’s cottage country, half way between Kingston and Sharbot Lake.
