Caseificio Il Fiorino
The Caseificio Fiorino dairy is located in a place of extraordinary charm and historical value, the medieval village of Roccalbegna on the slopes of Mount Amiata. The milk used to produce our cheeses comes exclusively from selected local farms in the neighboring municipalities: Roccalbegna, Saturnia, Semproniano, Scansano, Arcidosso, Cinigiano, Campagnatico, and Grosseto. After internal analysis, a selection is made based on the characteristics of the milk and the type of cheese to be made. The aim is to achieve the highest quality regardless of yield. Each processing step is carried out by hand by experienced cheesemakers. In fact, their Pecorino Toscano cheeses are awarded every year in the most important global competitions.
