This marriage of the earthy black truffle and the creme fraiche-like brightness in this tangy cheese is quite notable, and you will taste this perfect balance in every bite. Caciotta al Tartufo is made with a blend of pasteurized cow's and sheep milk in the Umbria Mountains of Italy, where they have always been famous for truffles.

We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in pieces of 1 pound and 8 ounces and if you like to purchase an entire wheel of approx. 2 pounds, please contact us by email or phone. read more...
