IL Forteto (the fort), is a commune tucked away in the Muggelano Valley, 30 kilometres from Florence. Cacio di Bosco is a pecorino cheese made from sheep’s milk that has small pieces of white truffle scattered throughout it’s pâté. The balance of flavours is harmonious, delivering a slightly sour, truffle rich earthy profile. Its long aging process (12 months minimum) delivers a firm texture, however resits being dry in the mouth.

An excellent table cheese, but being one of a very few truffle cheeses that captures the real flavour of truffle, it is also great to cook with, adding a real depth of flavour to any dish.
