Why we love it
The Pecorino delle Barme is a cow and sheep’s milk cheese with ancient origins, matured in the caves of our valleys (hence the name Barme), wrapped in fresh hay that preserve and protect the cheese whilst contributing to its aromatic complexity.
The Pecorino delle Barme has a straw yellow color, it is soft, sweet on the palate, characterised by a pleasant hints of hazelnut and pair perfectly structured white wines or young reds with a low alcoholic content.
The artisan who made it
The La Poiana Cooperative was created in 1982 with aim of protecting and promoting the local cheeses, cheeses from the so called Grana Valley, starting with the Castelmagno, the King. La Poiana is made by artisan cheese mongers that create cheeses respecting the tradition and the territory, the valley.
La Poiana is synonymous with Castelmagno, and their story began in 1982 when the Castelmagno became a DOC protected cheese. Made with local milk produced from cows left free to graze in the green mountain pastures, from Castelmagno di cooperative soon started producing other local cheeses, from Robiola to Pecorino. All their cheeses are made according to the tradition and are made with raw, non pasteurised milk, full and rich of flavour.
