Moliterno Italian Cheese Aged 6 months with Truffles

Are you a foodie like me, always looking for something different to tantalize your taste buds? Well look no further than a wedge of Moliterno Italian Cheese Aged 6 months with Truffles.

What’s so special about this cheese you ask? Well for one, the cheese gets its name from the town where it originates, in the Basilicata region of Italy. This cheese is also special because it is a sheep cheese made by blending a small percentage of goat’s milk into it as well. The cheese goes through a tender and loving process where it is formed in a basket over 24 hours and then left to age. But it is not ignored during the aging process; instead the cheese is constantly rubbed with olive oil to help it retain its moisture, adding a little tender loving care to the process. There are three classifications of this cheese that are based on its maturity. It can be “primitive,” which means it was aged between 2 and 6 months, “mature,” if it was aged at least 6 months, and “extra,” to denote a cheese aged at least 1 full year.

But what is really special about this Moliterno Italian cheese is the delicious truffles that are studded throughout the cheese. What a treat to have truffles in your cheese, giving it that something extra special and extra bit of unique taste. Unlike most cheeses that contain truffles, in the Moliterno Italian Cheese, the truffles are not added until the cheese is well aged. This ensures that even if the chunk of cheese you get does not have a truffle in it, the flavor is infused throughout.

The flavor is rich and salty with a strong bite and crumbles with a rich golden color. Pair this Moliterno Italian Cheese Aged 6 months with Truffles with a nice fruity red wine for a perfect combination to enjoy anytime.
