Processing characteristics

It is a medium-hard cheese made from seasonal sheep milk, during the spring and the autumn. After being pasteurized, are inserted in the milk ferments and rennet: the curd is broken to the size of a walnut. Following the serum is separated and is given the form to cheese by adding the truffle oil and flakes which gives the cheese its characteristic aroma. Then the form is shaped with a slight stewing until reaching pH 5.2.

Visual inspection:

Small black dots cover the skin and can be found throughout the dough. As a preservative we uses organic tomato sauce and organic olive oil. The dough is compact; the color is a range between pale yellow and yellow, with small black dots.
