Moliterno Al Tartufo
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.
Unless noted otherwise, Murray's cheeses sold by the lb. ship in multiple 0.5 lb increments. To request a whole wheel, or an intact portion of at least 2 lb, please contact the Murray’s team at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 72 hours prior to the date of shipment.
