The Area
Enna, Sicily.

The rind presents the pattern of the basket (canestro) and is golden coloured, texture is compact, without eyes and again golden coloured with
spots of black pepper grains.

Mild,with a blend of aromas that ranges from floreal to spicy, from fruity to animal; it's clear, but well balanced, the contribute of saffron.

The Piacentinu Ennese DOP is a hard cheese, made from sheep’s milk, short or medium-aged and produced in the area of Enna, Sicily. The particularity of this cheese is in how it is produced: in fact, during processing, saffron and black pepper corns are added to the paste. This product is a cornerstone of local cuisine, ideal to enjoy it on its own.

A legend says that around 1090 the king Ruggero il Normanno was worried for his wife depression, so he asked the local dairy makers to produce a
thaumaturgic cheese; needless to say that the saffron, recently arrived with Moors, was considered an anti-depressive and almost magic spice; the
connection with cheese came up easily.
