Formaggio delle Fosse Gozzi 300g
Ripened mixed cheese of cow’s and sheep’s milk, obtained by a traditional historic process, straw yellow colour rind, irregular shape, friable texture, intense smell, characteristic and pungent taste.
Formaggio delle Fosse Gozzi cheese originates from an ancient tradition dating back to the Malatesta era. At that time, deep pits were dug into the tufa rock of the Sogliano area, and were used to store the food necessary for the survival of the family. As chance would have it, some cheeses, preserved and forgotten, started the tradition of ageing pits. We still hand down this ancient technique today, which gives rise to a pecorino cheese with a strong aroma and smooth flavour, with pungent notes, excellent when used at the end of a meal and flaked in many recipes.
