Canestrato cheese
Come visit Gran Sasso Velino territory and discover the hearth of Abruzzo

Canestrato cheese


Pecorino cheese with semi-hard or hard texture, depending on the maturation, with a pleasantly intense aroma and flavour, rich in fragrances linked to the spontaneous essences present in the pasture herbs and in the fodder used to feed the sheep. The color varies from the white of the freshest pecorino, to the ever darker and more intense shades of yellow in the more seasoned versions.
