Pecorino al Tartufo (truffles) is a semi-firm, smooth sheep milk cheese that hails from central Italy.
Like its cows milk cousin Sottocenere al Tartufo (truffle) it is a visual sensation. The pale white colouring contrasts perfectly with the specks of black truffle. It is a must try experience despite the price!

Pungent and savoury.
Salty with that sheep milk bite and lots of savoury goodness.
This cheese has a smooth but firm bite.
White smooth interior, flecked with truffle shavings, with no openness.
By itself or with other cheeses. Also perfect for grating on pasta especially those with a white sauce.
No wine required except your favourite.
