Made with 4% real truffle, this is a Pecorino with Truffle that makes other truffle products seem like poor relations.  Slithers of fresh truffle are added at the beginning of the cheese process, which offsets the richness of the sheep’s milk to produce a truly intense cheese: firm, sharp and spicy with a rich truffle finish._x000D_

Tasty enough to make any truffle-lover giddy.
A classic Italian cheese made in the traditional way by family firm Villecco, in the heart of Sardinia.  Made using only the finest sheep’s milk from the island, this classic hard Pecorino style is then aged for a minimum of five months to give it the pleasant spiciness and sharpness associated with the best Pecorinos.  It’s made using 4% real fresh truffle, which is added at the beginning of the cheese making.  There are no truffle essences, flavourings or oil used here, just real fresh truffle!_x000D_

After hearing in the late 18th century about an excess of sheep’s milk on Sardinia, the Villecco family journeyed to Sardinia to make cheese seasonally through the spring when the milk was plentiful, before returning to the Italian mainland with their finished cheeses to sell in the summer and autumn.  In the 1920s, the family decided to settle for good in Sardinia and eventually set up their dairy in the central town of Serrenti, so they could source milk from the island’s small sheep farms as easily as possible._x000D_

Remaining dedicated to traditional recipes, using the milk from Sardinia’s finest sheep on the small farms, helps keep this Pecorino with Truffle head and shoulders above its counterparts!_x000D_
