Seasoned Canestrato

REF. F22171

The earliest references to this product date back to the fifteenth century, so we can comfortably say that its flavour is one of the most ancient in Sicilian dairy history. We could define it as the seasoned cheese par excellence, in the most classic form of the term.

It has a strong taste and an intense aroma that hides a slightly spicy aftertaste. It is a perfect pairing for sweet jams, creating an unparalleled contrast of flavors.
