Cacio di Roma (also called Cacio Romano) is a classic Italian cheese with a long history dating back to ancient Roman times. Made from sheep's milk, it has a hard, granular texture and a rich, tangy flavor that is both salty and sharp. This cheese is often used as a grating cheese, perfect for adding a savory kick to pasta dishes or salads.
Cacio di Roma is made in the Lazio, using traditional methods that have been passed down through generations of cheesemakers. The sheep's milk is curdled with natural rennet, then molded and aged for several months to develop its distinctive flavor and texture. During the aging process, the cheese is rubbed with olive oil to help it develop a smooth, shiny rind.
The result is a cheese with a complex flavor profile that is both robust and nuanced, with notes of nuttiness and grassiness. Its hard texture makes it easy to grate, but it can also be sliced thinly and served as a table cheese, paired with olives, bread, and cured meats.
