The pecorino aged under chestnut leaves in barrique comes from the widespread research that was done among the old shepherds of the Valdichiana, masters in the conservation of cheese with poor materials, giving the cheese a unique flavor and aroma. The forms are placed in oak barrels, and kept at room temperature. They are laid in layers together with the material in which the small cracks between the axes of the barrels are maturing, allowing the air to penetrate gently inside and create a perfect microclimate for the maturation of the cheese. When the shapes reach the perfect seasoning they are placed in boxes presenting the irregular shape but the aroma and intensity of the taste makes each cheese unique.
