Product description

This cheese made exclusively with sheep's milk from Italian farms flavored with chili pepper. We called it Piccantino precisely because chilli pepper is mixed with cheese and it is so important for health. The unique and different processing technique from all other producers is the secret that contributes to making this
cheese so different from all other flavored cheeses on the market.
