Moliterno al Tartufo

An over-the-top rockstar of cheese and truffles. A Sardinian Pecorino - firm, aged, sheep cheese - is marbled with black truffle paste. Big, bold, unforgettable. 

Lovers of truffles, cheese, or life will never forget their first experience with this rockstar. Moliterno al Tartufo’s base is a bold pecorino. Made on the island of Sardinia, each wheel is aged until the cheese becomes firm and the flavors intensify. Though firm, the texture is moist and when at room temperature, almost shimmers from the richness of high-fat sheep’s milk. The flavors are prominently sheepy, fatty and salty with savory notes of umami and a piquant flavor which will tingle on some palates. To really send it over the edge, each wheel is injected with black truffle paste which creates a striking marbled appearance in each slice. There’s no shyness or subtlety here: the truffle is prominent, infusing every bite with intoxicating fragrance and flavor. On a cheese board, Moliterno al Tartufo will be the star and needs equally bold pairings. In a tasting amongst other cheeses, feature this one last as the flavor will dwarf most others. Pair with big red wines - try a Sardinian theme with Cannonau or Vermentino. This extraordinary cheese is perfect for a special occasion or a gift. In the kitchen Moliterno al Tartufo makes a stupendous ingredient. Truffle-ize any dish by melting this into the mix. It also makes a fabulous topping, shaved over pasta, salad, risotto, potatoes, soups and more.
