What an amazing deal - saw them at the costco in Mountain View today. I still feel like to got away with something after buying it.
It's an amazing cheese - here's a description I found online

Cheese Facts :
Region : Piemonte
Country : Italy
Cheese Type : Bloomy: Buttery & Rich
Milk Type : Pasteurized Goat, Sheep & Cow
Wine Pairing : Sparkling wines
Rennet : Animal
Age : 2-4 weeks
Producer : Alta Langa

Description :
From the great wine region of Piemonte comes La Tur: a dense, creamy blend of pasteurized cow, goat and sheep milk. Runny and oozing around the perimeter with a moist, cakey, palette-coating paste, its flavor is earthy and full, with a lingering lactic tang. The effect is like ice cream served from a warm scoop; decadent and melting from the outside in. An ideal regional pairing would be a sparkling Asti Spumante – effervescence will whisk away the richness while matching the mild acidity. We recommend you get back-up; La Tur is always the first to go at a party.
