Pecorino Romano is a hard and cooked cheese, produced exclusively with fresh whole sheep's milk from the permitted areas. The salting can be done dry (older technique) or in brine, and the maturing lasts for at least 5 months for the table cheese and at least 8 for the grated one.
The shapes are cylindrical with flat faces, with a height of the heel between 25 and 40 cm and the diameter of the plate between 25 and 35 cm. The weight of the whole forms can vary between 20 and 35 kg.

Typical cheese from Lazio and Sardinia and from the province of Grosseto, it boasts an ancient origin, one of the oldest cheeses known to us.
It is possible to find some historical hints related to the Pecorino Romano in the texts of many ancient authors, such as Virgilio and Columella, writer of agricultural treaties that describes the processing in detail. Thanks also to these texts, it is also known that the Pecorino Romano was given as a ration to the soldiers of the Roman Empire, together with bread and spelled soup, thanks to its high nutritional value and its high capacity for preservation.
