Grotta Del Fiorini Caseificio Il Fiorino

The Fiorini cave is the heart of the entire dairy. From here, in fact, comes out the Pecorino Grotta of Fiorini, the cheese of the Tuscan peasant tradition, which contains in itself the scent and the taste that only a long aging in the cave at natural temperature and ventilation can give.

The cylindrical shape of about 2 kg, with a straight heel, has an edible and untreated rind, the typical white and greyish moulds of the aging in the cave; a delight, a pecorino dal intense, long and persistent taste, worthy of the name it bears. The Grotta del Fiorini presents itself with a compact, stiff, soluble paste with tiny, well-distributed, well-distributed eyes, with a medium plant odor, musty. Its tasting causes the highest perceptions and sensations that evoke the highest beauty and perfection of taste.

About the producer, Caseificio Il Fiorino :

The dairy is located in a place of extraordinary charm and historical value, the medieval village of Roccalbegna, located on the slopes of Mount Amiata and lapped by the Albegna river.
The milk used to make our cheeses comes exclusively from selected local farms. Roccalbegna, Saturnia, Semproniano, Scansano, Arcidosso, Cinigiano, Campagnatico and Grosseto; places dedicated to the agricultural tradition already in the Etruscan era, and where fortunately even today thanks to this, the hilly landscape has been kept almost intact. Every day the vehicles collect the milk and reach the dairy where the processing begins. After an internal analysis, a selection is made based on the characteristics of the milk and according to the type of cheese to be made.

The goal is aimed at the highest quality regardless of yield. Each processing step is performed by hand by expert cheesemakers. The “added” ingredients such as certified rennet and the Volterra salt are also qualitatively exclusive.

In flavored and refined productions such as pistachio, saffron, chilli etc .. coming exclusively from top quality productions.

Salting, a process that not only gives taste but also prevents the deterioration of the forms by hand one by one, prepares for the ripening phase.

The latter takes place in controlled temperature environments, which, with different times depending on the product (from a minimum of 20 to a maximum of 40 days) prepares if it is necessary for the seasoning; where they are left to rest in cells on boards of wooden boards with different times and methods for each cheese.

In the village, where the old artisan factory once stood, the Fiorini cave was enlarged and restored, which is the heart of the entire dairy. It is from these evocative and ideal environments for maturing that the most renowned products of Il Fiorino come out, such as the Pecorino Riserva del Fondatore, the Pecorino Grotta del Fiorini and the Cacio di Caterina.

Treasures that preserve a perfume and a taste that only the long rest, at temperature and natural ventilation, can give. The seasoning in the cave gives the crust, without treatments, the typical white and greyish molds that characterize these excellent products.

This is the last unparalleled and irreproducible “touch” that closes the circle of the production path of the Fiorino dairy, before distribution.
