Pecorino Nero is an Italian, raw, sheep's milk cheese produced by the Caseificio Pinzani. It is soft cheese, aged for thirty days with a milky white paste and a subtle yet pungent taste that is a result of the sheep milk from the Volterra Cliffs. It goes perfect with cold meats, beans and fresh seasonal vegetables.
