pecorino-ginepro-low-res-2This semihard sheep’s milk cheese is bathed in balsamic vinegar (a regional specialty) and juniper berries and then aged in oak barrels. The deep reddish brown rind that develops encases a bone white paste that is slightly granular and flaky. Full of flavor, musty aromas yield to a lingering fruity, woodsy finish with hints of juniper. 2/6#
