Sottocenere®

$27.99/Lb


This creamy, labor-intensive cheese is made of pasteurized cow's milk from the northern Italian region of Veneto and features one of Italy's most beloved exports - truffle. Sottocenere means "under ash", referring to the layer of ash this cheese is aged and rubbed in, sealing the aromatics of this particular cheese inside its succulent paste. Aged in a coat of nutmeg, coriander, cinnamon, licorice, cloves, and fennel, the Semi-Soft paste is laced throughout with slivers of black truffle. Delicate, aromatic and unusual, Sottocenere is a silken indulgence perfectly suited to the sparkle of Lambrusco and an earthy spread of foie gras.
