Carmasciano

sheep's cheese from Avellino

Made on small family farms in seven comunes around Avellino, Carmasciano is a historic pecorino cheese named after the tiny località of Carmasciano. It's made only from milk of the rare, wide tailed Laticauda sheep, and eaten as a table cheese when young, but can be grated over dishes when aged.
