This truffle cheese is made in Spain in the region of Albacete. Unlike most truffled cheeses, it is after the cheese is made that a truffle paste (containing 5% summer truffles) is injected into the paste. It is then matured for a minimum of 4 months. This method allows the cheese to develop its own character and a powerful aroma.
Italian black summer truffles are interspersed throughout the interior of the cheese, which is matured to achieve the perfect balance of flavours.
A rich, pungent aroma wafts out of the cheese as soon as you cut into the dense but pliant curd. Pale butter yellow in appearance, the black streaks of truffle stand out where they have settled into natural crevices throughout the wheel. The bold and earthy flavour of the truffle complements the characteristically buttery flavour of the cheese.
