SOTTOCENERE al TARTUFO Sergio Moro

Cow's Milk
Italy
Aged: 4-6 months

Sottocenere is a truffle infused Italian cheese from the northern region of Veneto. Its name meaning "under ash", is from the layer of ash that covers the cheese as it ages.

It is a very pale yellow semi-soft cheese that is aged in a coat of nutmeg, coriander, cinnamon, licorice, cloves, and fennel and studded throughout with slices of rich, black truffle. Made with raw cow's milk, the cheese is aged in an ash rind to retain the aromatics over a long period of time as well as to evoke the delicate flavors of the cinnamon and nutmeg.
