Trifulìn Cheese from the Langhe

Product

It used to be claimed that the aroma of the truffles penetrated through the earth to the cheeses ripening in cellars dug out in the Piedmont woods. Whether this was true or not, this product (at least in the version aromatised by the precious black tuber) is undoubtedly a recent creation, following the trends of current enthusiasm for truffles in all their forms and guises.
