While most truffle cheeses are little more than a bland paste dressed up by truffle flavor, Caciotta al Tartufo is an exception. It is made with high quality milk in the countryside of Rome. Our producer mixes in generous amounts of these quality black truffles into a sumptuous blend of cow’s and sheep’s milk aged 60-75 days, resulting in superb cheese that’s also a good value.
Caciotta is a creamy, semi-soft cheese from central Italy, made with ewe's, cow's, goat's, buffalo's milk, or any combination. It is a beginner cheese, but it has an unusual step in the make process called the 'stufatura,' which means 'steaming' in Italian.
