Riserva del Fondatore, a cheese created by Angela and Simone and dedicated to the company’s founder, in recognition of his having left them the management of this prestigious business. This can be considered “the cheese” par excellence of the caseificio il fiorino, the most awarded and appreciated of the company. It is made from highly selected sheep’s milk, produced using traditional methods and matured in caves. 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.
