Caciotta al Tartufo is an Italian semi-soft cheese infused with black truffle shavings. It is made using a mix of pasteurised cow's and sheep's milk in the Umbria region of Italy. This exotic cheese is matured for one month during which the truffle and milk combination play a big role in developing the vibrant tangy flavour. Its paste is mild and gentle with a rind dotted with speckles of truffle. The earthy flavours of Caciotta al Tartufo make a good pairing with dry whites or sharp and strong wines such as Merlot.
