Crotonese, a pure sheep's milk cheese made in four pound wheels comes to us from Calabria, in southern Italy. It is produced between the months of January and June when sheep's milk is the best and most abundant. Crotonese has that famous pecorino flavor and is both sweet and salty. Like most ewe's milk varieties, its surface is a bit oily due to the natural oils in the milk. Formed in woven molds, the rind takes on a ribbed pattern that makes a nice presentation. Excellent as a snacking cheese, Crotonese is an ideal partner for Brunello wine.
  • Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.
  • Photo depicts whole 3 lb. form of cheese.
  • We cut and wrap this item by the pound.
  • Please contact us if you would like to purchase the whole form.

Pecorino crotonese
Tangy and creamy sheep cheese. I grated it over mixed greens on several occasions and guests raved over the distinctive taste. It is also delicious eaten with apple slices. I'd certainly buy it again.

Crotonese
I had never tried this cheese before, was pleasantly surprised by the nutty flavor, and it has a great texture for grating onto soups. Would recommend if you like parmesan-type cheese.

Wonderful Surprise
Crotonese was on sale so tried it! What a great flavor-a cross between Romano and Parmesan smooth and with a bite-Wonderful Surprise! I ended up ordering another whole wheel,

Excellent
I bought a small piece to test it out and am going to purchase the entire wheel next time - that is how much we enjoyed this cheese

Wonderful
Crotonese pairs well with proscuitto, it lingers of parmesan but with a hint of cream. Or just bite a chunk off, you won't be disappointed.

crotonese
The crotonese cheese is excellent. It was delivered promptly and in a carefully-packed and secure carton. I will certainly purchase more products from this company in the future.

Greate cheese
I am really into sheep milk cheeses and I liked Crotonese much more than some more expensive types.

A good cheese
Very sharp, both in order and in taste but overall a good cheese. It took several samplings over a two day period to grow on me. Best taste came with a red wine and some almonds.
