Produced by Romaniae Terrae, Pecorino dei Malatesta sotto Cenere is an Italian cheese made with highly selected sheep's milk pasteurized at optimum temperature. Cheese wheels are first matured in a cold room at 6° - 8°C. Later, during the final stage of maturation they are treated with ash and kept in a cold room at 8°C for about 30 days.

It is a white cheese with a smooth texture, delicate mouthfeel and sweet flavour of sheep's milk with an aftertaste of fresh milk.
