Brigante Italian Pecorino


by Pinna. Sardinia, Italy.

Fratelli Pinna started making cheese in the early 1920's and is today perhaps the largest cheesemaker on the island. Each day fresh milk comes in to the plant from surrounding sheep and goat dairies whose animals graze on the indigenous grasses and herbs of this special place. Brigante is a young pasteurized pecorino aged only a few weeks before being released. It is semi-soft with mild milky flavors and nice citrus notes.

Ingredients: pasteurized sheep's milk, salt, rennet. CONTAINS: MILK

We ship perishable items in thermo-insulated cardboard boxes with reusable ice packs to insure that you food items arrive in good shape.

All cheeses we slice to order and wrap in cheese paper as we want you to enjoy original flavor of cheese - not damaged by vacuum or plastic.

All meats which require slicing we slice to order and lay it out on wax paper (deli-style) so it is easy to separate slices. Then we pack it in a plastic pouch with nitrogen purge (again, to make it easy to separate pieces we don't vacuum the meats but use commercial style food grade inert gas mix).


CALIFORNIA: Monday - Thursday. 

OUTSIDE OF CALIFORNIA: Monday - Wednesday. 

Note that the shipping method (for example, overnight) doesn't mean that your order will be processed and shipped on the same day you placed the order. Generally, allow us at least one day for processing your order as we slice and wrap everything by hand to order.

Any US federal holidays may delay the shipment. 


Saturday delivery is not available at the moment.
