Sottocenere

The pronounced aroma of truffles is the first thing you'll notice when cutting into this beautiful semi-firm cheese. Sottocenere, a grand wheel encased in a brittle, grey rind of ashes, truffles, herbs and spices, literally translates to "under ash." Notes of scalded cream and vanilla manage to sneak past the predominantly earthy flavor profile. Studded with slices of rich, black truffle, this cheese creates a sense of mystery and elegance.

Available in 12- or 1-pound wheels.
