Sottocenere® al Tartufo is a truffle-infused Italian cheese made with pasteurized cow's milk in the northern region of Veneto. It is a pale yellow, semi-soft cheese. Black truffles are added to the paste, which is then aged in ashes for three months. A green leaf and spices like nutmeg, coriander, anise, cinnamon, licorice, cloves, and fennel on the rind retain the aroma of the cheese. 

This exotic cheese is best appreciated on its own yet if you wish, pair it with a glass of sparkling wine or Italian Barbera.
