Made on the island of Sardinia off the coast of Italy, La Rustichella Pecorino cheese is made from 100% raw sheep milk. Both delicious and visually intriguing, this cheese is a show-stopper.
Unlike most truffled cheeses, the truffle shavings for this cheese are not added until the cheese is already semi-aged. This allows the cheese to develop its own character and flavour profile before the truffles are injected. Though the truffles are only visible in the “veins” their flavour permeates the entire paste. Aged for 3 months, this cheese is incredibly textured, deliciously pungent, and salty. Once cut, the black truffles ooze out of the crevices, creating a delectable, delicious and visually appealing cheese. Enjoy this pecorino with a big, earthy Italian red wine with enough muscle to stand up to the truffles.
Since 1986, La Rustichella has been one of the world’s leading producers of truffle products, including their Moliterno Black Truffle cheese which was awarded Gold Winner of the 2017-2018 World Cheese Awards.
