An award winning ubriaco-style cheese with a big personality, Testun al Barolo has an intoxicating fruit aroma and sweet grape flavor that balances the buttery paste of the cheese. Inspired by the pastoral heritage of his home region of Piemonte, Beppino Occelli started out by producing his now famous butter in 1976 using milk from cows grazing on the alpine meadows. Since then, he has a developed a line of remarkably unique farmstead cheeses that are unmistakably “Occelli,” using the best quality alpine milk - in this case, from cows and sheep. Aged for 90 days, his Testun al Barolo is finished with marc (a brandy distilled from grape pomace) enriched with Barolo DOCG.
