In 1954, the laws that mandate the production of Pecorino Romano were loosened to allow milk from Sardinia into the recipe. Sardinian milk, which was high-quality and flat out cheap, lured some fifty producers of Romano across the Tyrrhenian Sea and onto the Island. Presently, there are four producers remaining in Lazio, the area around Rome, making Pecorino Romano as tradition dictates, and not giving in to the looser restrictions of modern mandate. Fulvi is one of those producers, and while Locatelli (from Sardinia) is more popular, Fulvi has converted many tasters. While it is still significantly salty, it is less salty than Locatelli, and it is more grassy and lactic, which makes it easier to consume as a table cheese. Finding the name Fulvi hard to remember, many of our customers refer to this as the "Black Skin Romano," but no matter how you call it, it is delicious and will do wonders for your pasta dishes.
