Pecorino Romano is a PDO product (protected designation of origin) since 1996; but it was already a DOC product since ’56.

Contrary to what is believed because of the name ROMANO, today almost all of this product is produced in Sardinia (about 97%; the rest is produced in Lazio and the province of Grosseto, Tuscany) and F.lli Pinna is one of the main producers. It was born in Rome over 2,000 years ago but in the last century it reached such proportions to become the cheese for which it turns most of the sheep’s milk of Sardinia. It is one of the most exported Italian cheese in the world.
