The texture of this product is rich, lightly grainy with small scattered pieces of truffle that give the cheese its unmistakable flavor. To clearly distinguish this particular product, a black coating is placed on the rind, and a sophisticated graphic is engraved on the upper flat surface. The wheel weight is about 5 pounds.
