La Tentazione del frate

Ripened sheep's milk cheese

In the past cheese was the food of country folk and people of meagre means. Very often their meals consisted only of “bread and cheese”. For this reason we wanted to dedicate a cheese specially for them because they were always able to appreciate what little they possessed.

“La Tentazione del Frate” is a mature sheep milk cheese with a rich delicate flavour that pairs well with pears or honey. We chose a name that would precisely reflect this idea, a cheese so good that not even a friar would be able to resist.
