Description: Roman unweaned, milk-fed spring lamb, killed between 30 and 60 days old and weighing between 6.3-9 kg (14 to 20 lb). The meat is very tender and pale, almost like chicken. This is an Easter treat as the lambs reach the right age around that time. They are usually spit-roasted and the meat is always well done.
