In Tuscany, the art of cheese making (because it is a real art!), has a long and ancient tradition.
Made with milk from local pastures, Tuscan cheeses are unique and special artisanal products.
There are so many: soft or seasoned, with a delicate or pungent taste, each one with unique and unmistakable characteristics.
There are so many cheeses in Tuscany, – like “ricotta”, or “marzolino – but without a doubt, the “pecorino”, is the best known and appreciated. It is produced with 100% sheep’s milk and enriches the dishes of Tuscan cuisine since the time of the Etruscans.
If you are a cheese lover, do not miss a cheese tasting in one of the dairy farms of Montaione where you can also buy some to take home.
