Grotto aged pecorino is the result of an ancient aging technique, which developed mainly in central Italy.
There were no refrigerators and therefore to keep the cheeses at a refrigerated temperature during their maturation, they were placed in natural caves.
It was later discovered that the particular microclimatic conditions some caves were able to give the cheeses typical and unique characteristics.
In fact, in addition to the low temperature, the noble cheeses were away from sources of light and heat and aged in a very humid environment.
This has caused some to form around noble molds which, in addition to protecting the cheeses from external pathogens, also affected the grotto aged pecorino, making its flavor intense and unmistakable.
The environmental conditions of the cave also allowed the pecorino to take on the particular consistency which made it inimitable.
This curing technique spread like wildfire, especially in Tuscany, only to be left aside in the last century in favor of less laborious and more profitable curing methods.
The tradition, however, has not been lost and so the grotto aged pecorino has been revalued, becoming an excellence of Italian gastronomy
