How is Pecorino di Fossa PDO born?

After a few months of maturing, the cheese produced with sheep's milk is selected and enclosed in large-fiber sacks of natural fiber, and then stored in four-meter deep tuff pits, filled with layers of leaves and straw.

In the bottom of the pits a small hole is obtained for the collection of the oils due to the refermentation. At the end of August, the pits are sealed with chalk and pebbles, and then reopened in November, the day of Saint Catherine.
