Why we love it
The Tartufone d’Alpe is a cheese made with cow’s milk and black truffle flakes following a traditional local recipe. The texture is enriched by flakes of black truffle which gives the cheese a unique and unmistakable taste.
With aging that takes place in natural caves on cherry wood boards, the Tartufone d’Alpe becomes more complex and rich to satisfy the most demanding palates.
The Tartufone d’Alpe pairs perfectly complex and structured red wines.
The artisan who made it
The La Poiana Cooperative was created in 1982 with aim of protecting and promoting the local cheeses, cheeses from the so called Grana Valley, starting with the Castelmagno, the King. La Poiana is made by artisan cheese mongers that create cheeses respecting the tradition and the territory, the valley.
La Poiana is synonymous with Castelmagno, and their story began in 1982 when the Castelmagno became a DOC protected cheese. Made with local milk produced from cows left free to graze in the green mountain pastures, from Castelmagno di cooperative soon started producing other local cheeses, from Robiola to Pecorino. All their cheeses are made according to the tradition and are made with raw, non pasteurised milk, full and rich of flavour.
