It presents a bloomy rind and is made with whole pasteurized cow’s milk from quality herds of the Iblei Mountains following traditional processing techniques.
This cheese “Luna Piena” plus black truffle, has a whitish grey bloomy rind due to the presence of some moulds like Pennicilium candidum which give the cheese a creamy undercrust and a soft texture with a delicate yet full-bodied taste. For the most refined palates it is enriched by brisure of summer truffles Tuber Aestivum Vitt.
The fancy name derives from its circular shape and colour, induced by the moulds during its ripening process, making it similar to a full moon.
The weight of each form is approximately 1.1/1.2 Kg., with a height of 3/4 cm and a diameter of about 15 cm.
