Raw Milk Pecorino with no less than 45 days of ageing. The cheese is compact and light yellow with intermittent holes due to the use of raw milk. Super Cuscusa, like all the Cuscusa cheeses, are perfect expressions of the territory they come from. It is becoming more and more difficult to find cheeses made this way as raw milk production is more difficult and expensive. We also have found that many people digest these cheeses better compared to more traditional pasteurized cheese.

FIORE SARDO is the traditional shepherd’s cheese. It is one of the 4 Sardinian DOPs. In this case it is made with raw milk, lamb rennet and no less than 4 months of ageing. Fiore is always smoked as well, following the tradition of the shepherd who stored the cheese in his hut , getting smoked naturally by the same fire the shepherd used for cooking and for heat. The Cuscusa Fiore has a nice bite to it and as it ages it gets harder for grating.

4,5 Kg 10 lb
30 day Pecorino or Mixed Sheep and Goat or Goat. Aged 30 days. Fresh cheese good for melting or for a milder cheese. Gemmefigu can be made with more or less salt depending on preference.

This is one of our favorite Sardinian Vermentinos, perfect in its simplicity.

Bottle size: 0,75 It
Grade: 14 %

Organic Cannonau with a deep red color and aromas of raspberry and blackberries and also tones of Mediterranean plants. Not as Tannic or as dark red as many Cannonaus. Perfect with Charcuterie, cheese, red meat and soups with beans. Fermentation and ageing is done in stainless steel. Sardinian Cannonaus can be overpowering and heavy on the tannins. This Cannonau is much smoother and more “amabile” for this category of wine, making it a much more versatile red wine.

Nutty, earth, delicate with a white paste. The more aged versions become spicy with a long range of flavors.

L’Aigos with Truffles
5 Kg 11 lb
Aged 6-15 months, Goat cheese.
Same as Aigos with thinly sliced Umbrian truffles. The combination of aged goat cheese and Truffles makes this one of our favorite cheeses to the widest range of customers. People cannot get enough of this cheese! In fact, every year, this cheese sells out.

L’Armentosu with Truffles
5 Kg 11 lb
Aged 6-15 months, Pecorino cheese.
Fragrant pearl-colored paste, a result of the combination between the black truffle and the spicy aftertaste of veal rennet. Most Pecorino and Caprinos “with truffles” are made with Truffle oil that is injected once the cheese is finished. Our Caprino and Pecorinos with truffles are made with real truffles from the beginning of making the cheese, making for a much more harmonious and magic combination of flavors. Out of stock until May 2022.
