ISO: Testun al Barolo cheese

Hoping to buy some to try for Christmas, does anyone one know where to get it ? Thanks!

  1. Amazing cheese. One of my favourites. I love the texture of the grape must.

    Chris' Cheesemongers at SLM has it. It's super expensive but worth every penny.

      Thanks Acd123! Will have to make a trip there soon! About how much is it ? I know it's expensive, but since you said it's SUPER expensive...

      1. re: bon

        Alex Farms on the Danforth usually has it and I have also bought some from the Cheese Emporium at Avenue Road and Fairlawn. A small wedge may cost you roughly $15. Okay if you are able to purchase only what you came for in the first place. I always end up with a few other types, and a jar of this or that, and before you know it, it's $100.

        Specialty cheese shops are dangerous for me.

          I have also bought it from the Alex locations at St. Lawrence market, Yonge St north of Eglinton and Bayview south of Eglinton. They don't always have it so call your nearest location to check on price and availability.

          I can't remember exactly, but I think it may be one of their most expensive cheeses.

            Though it's expensive, I am still going to try it, since it's Christmas~ Thanks everyone!

      2. They definitely have it at the Cheese Boutique (I purchased a wedge there in October).
