The rind is thin and its color is red. The red color has to do with the treatment of this cheese with tomato sauce. This has been over the centuries a traditional technique of passing some acid taste to the pecorino cheeses in Tuscany. The paste is soft to semi hard and its color is white to ivory. Small eyes are scattered across the paste. The taste is long, buttery and round. The aftertaste is round, slightly acid however sweet due to the butter of the milk.
