Moliterno Al Tartufo

$44.99/Lb


This luxurious and holiday party-worthy pecorino is aged for six months before earthy black truffle is added to the mix. Once the cheesemaker deems the un-truffled wheels delicious enough in their own right, they are sent North--to truffle country!--to be ever-so-delicately drilled and filled with rich truffle paste. The result is a visually stunning cheese that manages to taste even better than she looks. Think big, bold Italian or Californian reds when looking for a drinkable companion; Moliterno is hearty and decadent enough to require pairings that can stand up to her bold flavors.
