Speziato is a soft compact cheese made from pasteurized cow's milk. Silvers of black truffle are integrated into the paste of the cheese before pressing. After a brief aging period, the wheels are rubbed with a treatment of extra virgin olive oil and spices, especially cinnamon and nutmeg.

After one month of aging, the cheese develops a thin, bronze-coloured rind that is described as "the sand of the Jordanian desert". Beneath is a soft paste with a delectable earthy truffle flavour balanced by the aromatic, spicy notes from the rind. Sauvignon Blanc or a Chardonnay makes a great match with Speziato.
