Curiosity Since the sixteenth century this cheese has been the most valuable and famous of the Tuscan cheeses, known in other regions as well. This cheese was a part of the commissions of royal houses in many areas in Italy and it was considered as a precious gift. Once it was produced only in the month of March, therefore the name Marzolino
Our selection When we met with Angela and Simone we were surprised with their genuine interest and enthusiasm about cheese making. When we tried their cheeses we realized that their products were precisely aligned with our philosophy. The thing we liked most is that they work only with the milk coming from the Maremma area, a significant step in their efforts to market the natural treasures of their territory

Caseificio Il Fiorino - Roccabegna (GR) - Tuscany

Why we chose them
In Il Fiorino dairy the cheesemaking is a family art started in 1957 in Roccalbegna thanks to Duilio Fiorini. Today his daughter Angela with her husband Simone are managing the company which has gradually grown over the years. During this period Angela and Simone have succeeded in making their dairy products known and appreciated all over the world, while at the same time preserving the authenticy and craftmanship of the products. One of the main strengths of the cheese of Il Fiorino is the raw material: milk comes exclusively from Maremma area and is collected dayly only from selected local farms. The most important production takes place between March and July, respecting the seasonal lactation cycle of sheeps. When we first met Angela and Simone we were impressed by their glee and passion but when we tasted their cheese we understood that we we share the same philosophy.
