Smelly Cheese Co

Il Magnifico


Il Magnifico is 'the pearl' of the production range of the Caseificio Storico di Amatrice, unique for its particular octagonal shape, for its flavour and nutritional values.

An award-winning matured Pecorino, made exclusively from high quality raw milk, coming only from the pastures of the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park mountain ranges.

Made following an ancient recipe handed down by Amatrician shepherds, it evokes a genuine and authentic taste, in which it is possible to find the notes of mountain herbs and the imprint of the cheesemaker's experience.

The pure and uncontaminated air together with the mountain temperatures are exceptional tools to undertake the maturing process that ends, once ripened, in natural tuffaceous caves dating back to the 1st century B.C., where the typical microclimate, humidity and low light give the product a unique taste, determining that intense and enveloping but not too spicy flavour.
