A matured pecorino that combines the intense taste of aged pecorino with the precious and unmistakable one of truffle. It is a cheese in basket, embellished with attractive veins of truffle puree injected into the cheese that create a unique internal marbling effect.
It is made only from Sardinian sheep milk in wheels of about 4 kg with a striped rind, treated with olive oil, with a dark yellow colour. Unlike most truffle cheeses, here the truffle puree is infused only once the cheese has reached a satisfactory ripening period, giving the cheese a typical strong and aromatic flavour. The result is a superb cheese with a strong, pungent, persistent but fairly balanced taste, with an elegant finish that deserves to be paired with a good meditation wine.
The paste can be semi-hard depending on the curing time and crumbly. The colour is straw yellow, with the dark brown of the internal veins given by the truffle puree. The scent of truffle can already be felt when cut, the flavour is intense and decisive, almost spicy. It is mainly enjoyed in flakes or small pieces, according to taste. Grated, it gives a delicious aroma and a complex, rich and deep flavour to pasta and risotto.
