This aged pecorino from Sardegna is based on the Moliterno style, with the addition of black truffle. Aged a minimum of 6 months, it is sharp, buttery, and savory, with a slightly granular texture and hints of truffle that complement rather than overwhelm the flavor of the paste. It's an excellent value for a 100% sheep's milk cheese with truffle.
The curds are placed in a basket and left to drain, imprinting a gorgeous, pronounced basket rind. As it ages, the flavor becomes sharper.
