The Gran Tartufino is an excellent example of high quality cheese making, which is still regarded as an authentic art in Tuscany. It is made from fresh cows milk, from the historic dairy farm of “ Il Palagiaccio”. This elegant cheese is enriched with black and white truffles. It is slightly creamy in texture with a rich, distinctive taste and aroma of truffles; the truffles are found beneath the trees in the secular forest which surrounds the Historic Palagiaccio castle. The Gran Tartufino is aged in the “Ubaldini Grottos” which are located beneath the medieval castle dating back to the 1200’s.
This special cheese adds elegance and flavor when shaved upon salads, steak, potatoes, french fries and pasta.
