Produced by Romaniae Terrae, Pecorino Gran Riserva del Passatore is an Italian cheese made according to old and secret production techniques, passed down from preceding generations. The cheese is dry salted and rubbed with raw flaxseed oil everyday to obtain a soft rind and allow even maturation.

The rind has a scorched earth colour beneath which lies a white paste with a silky, smooth texture and melt-in-the-mouth flavour with a pleasant aftertaste of fresh milk.
