Sardinians have been tending sheep for thousands of years, since the beginning of recorded history. Today, the stunning island off the Italian coast is home to about 4 million sheep. Their fresh, raw milk goes into crafting these exquisite name-protected wheels, which are then smoked over native Sardinian shrubs.
Fiore is the Italian word for flower. The "Flower of Sardinia" is packed with sharp, subtly smoky, and piquant flavor, which becomes more intense with age--and a lovely firm texture. Fiore Sardo DOP is perfect for savoring with a glass of Montepulciano and a loaf of crusty bread, or shaving into salads, pasta, and risotto.
