Pecorino Scorza Nera

This "Black Skin" Pecorino is a classic Pecorino cheese, made by raw organic sheep milk. Its black skin is due to charcoal, mixed with flour and olive oil.

This skin protects the cheese from drying out too much, and keeps the texture very soft. It was so requested in the 19th Century in the Reign of Naples, that the Abruzzi Shepherds created a special store in Naples dedicated only to this cheese.
