Boschetto al Tartufo is a fresh, semi-soft cheese made from a combination of a cow's and sheep's milk. It is infused with shavings of highly-prized rare white truffles that lend an earthy, luxurious and robust aroma and flavour to the cheese. The cheese is a perfect marriage of the pungent taste of the kingly fungus and delicate, sweet taste of the paste.

This Italian cheese from Tuscany is aged for less than 60 days and manufactured by the Il Forteto Cooperative in the Tuscan town of Mugello.
