Pecorino Romano PDO “Cappato Nero” Sheep’s Milk Cheese
Pecorino Romano is a cheese produced in Sardinia, Lazio and in the province of Grosseto. The processing of this cheese must take place exclusively within these areas, including the lactic ferments and the rennet which must be local. Although the name may lead one to think that it is a cheese typical of Rome, today it is primarily produced in Sardinia, with only a small part of the production taking place in Lazio and Grosseto.
Famous as a grated cheese (a fundamental ingredient for most pasta dishes and risottos typical of Roman cuisine), it is also excellent to enjoy on its own. Guffanti offers it in a spectacular version aged for 24 months, process that takes place in the cellars owned by Arona.

When, in 1876, Luigi Guffanti began to age Gorgonzola, his ingenious intuition led to the purchase of an abandoned silver mine in Valganna, in the province of Varese. The rest is simply history! Over time, the Guffanti family has specialized in the selection, aging and refinement of the best Italian and international dairy products: the experience accumulated on Gorgonzola, which remains the brand’s trademark, has gradually been transferred to all other types of cheese. Five generations later, the attention to the artisanal quality of the dairy product and the passion for its careful refinement continue to characterize the Guffanti-Fiori family, which today has consolidated its status as one of the best cheese refiners in the world.
