Canistrato di Moliterno

Canestrato is a type of pecorino made in the commune of Moliterno, located at the intersection of CampaniaCalabria and Basilicata.  Canestrato is made with sheep and goat’s milk.

It has a soft and fairly fatty paste that is ivory colored and its flavor is strong, leaning towards spicy.

When aged it becomes harder, and more pungent and salty-and is great for grating over food
