Su Nuraxi mature
Su Nuraxi (mature), excellent pecorino table and grating cheese, made using only fresh sheep’s milk from pastures of Sardinia’s counrtyside. It can be considered the king of traditional cheeses for its very ancient origin. It always has a strong flavour, with an increasing piquancy as it matures, with spicy and toasted sensory notes. It has a characteristic convex outer edge, with an average weight of 2.8 kg, and maturing period longer than six months. Its paste is hard, white or light yellow. Very nutritious and digestible, it is used both as an appetizer and a condiment, grated on ricotta-stuffed ravioli and culurgiones, traditional ravioli stuffed with potatoes, mint and Sardinian pecorino cheese, closed by pinching the edges, with a shape that recalls a wheat ear.
