Piacentinu DOP
A rare cheese that is produced exclusively in Sicily, Piacentinu is most noted for its striking yellow color which results from the addition of saffron during the cheese-making process. In typical Sicilian fashion, this sheep's milk cheese from Enna is flavored with whole black peppercorns. Still made by hand using ancient traditions, Piacentinu is crafted using antique tools and wooden vats. Aged for three months, it has a mellow yet distinct flavor and a dry texture.
