Smoked aged pecorino
Lazzone is a seasoned table pecorino made of unpasteurized milk processed raw. There are no preservatives or additives. Veal rennet makes it less spicy than Fiore Sardo. After a light smoking, the wheel is washed with red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. The seasoning lasts from eight to twenty-four months.
It is eaten alone or accompanied by bread and cold cuts, pounded lard, beans with oil and chickpeas. When heavily seasoned, it adds flavor to risottos, soups and white pasta, or with the addition of black pepper and freshly sizzled sweet bacon. Paired with strawberries and sour oranges. It goes well with slightly sparkling water. Try it with the Aleatico dell’Elba.
