Product description

The refiner has created a new alchemy …. a cheese that owes its name to the crust that is not particularly flat, but full of curves and depressions. Then, because it is all black, it has acquired this characteristic name.
Blue cheese made with three different types of milk (cow, sheep and goat) matured for about 2 months. Then, it is split in half and charcoal is inserted. The cheese is then refined again so that the two halves come together to form a single body and then treated in a crust with charcoal.

It is interesting to see the result, or the characteristic coloring, since it is a blue with a central horizontal black streak. Visually it definitely has an effect that intrigues. And if the sight is curious, the taste amazes!

Edible crust.
