Our newest firm ewes’milk cheese is from Pietra del Sale in Basilicata. It was granted Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) in 2007. A traditional regional specialty, Canestrato di Filiano is made solely from the milk of the native Razza Gentile Sheep. The curds are drained in straw baskets who impart their distinctive woven pattern to the finished forms. Aged for 8-10 months in natural caves, the cheese is full flavoured and robust. Nutty and sweet, the flavour builds to a more assertive and sharp finish.
