    Product Description

    From Italy

    Steeped in the tradition of Sogliano Al Rubicone, Pecorino di Fossa by Mitica is still made the traditional way to this day. The cheese is wrapped in cloth and buried in straw-lined caves in mid August, waiting and aging until it is dug up on November 25, during the holiday of Santa Caterina. Cheeses buried toward the bottom of the cave are earthier than the ones near the middle or top of the cave. Regardless of where the cheeses rest, they all have acquired an exceptional flavor and fragrance from the stay underground.
