Affienato cheese is a 100% pasturised sheep’s milk cheese from the Mugello region in Tuscany, Italy. Made at Il Forteto cheese farm. Aged 12 months in wildflower honey and hay, which is grown on the farm, produces a flavour that is nutty, with a delicate honey sweetness and overtones of grass. Pungent yet clean.
