Made from raw sheep's milk, this variety of cheese comes from the French island of Corsica in the Mediterranean. Semi-firm in texture, Carsu Vecchiu is formed into wheels ranging in size from 3 to 5 pounds. As the cheese ages from 1 to 6 months it develops a mold speckled, tannish to grey natural rind covering a straw colored paste with numerous small eyes. The paste of Corsu Vecchiu provides a tangy flavor that is sweet, nutty and somewhat salty tasting. Corsu Vecchiu can be served as a snacking cheese with dark breads and medium bodied red wines or shaved as a topping for pasta, casseroles, soup, and meats. This cheese may also be referred to as Tomme Corsu Vecchiu.
