Basil, extra virgin olive oil, and pecorino cheese are synonymous with Italian cuisine. The Tuscan cooperative known as Il Forteto in Mugello (near Florence) has united these flavors in Basilio cheese. Basil and extra virgin olive oil are rubbed on the rind and melded with soft pecorinos to create harmonious pesto flavors.
