Unfortunately, that's not a specific face. The pattern is set in
org.el:org-set-font-lock-defaults around line 5894:

|            ...
| 	   ;; Description list items
| 	   '("^[ \t]*[-+*][ \t]+\\(.*?[ \t]+::\\)\\([ \t]+\\|$\\)"
| 	     1 'bold prepend)
|            ...

So you can redefine the bold face but that's probably a bad idea, since
it is going to change the appearance of a lot of things.  Otherwise, you
have to change the code above to achieve what you want, by replacing
``bold'' with the face of your choice (possibly of your own devising, if
the list of faces obtained with list-faces-display does not contain one
that meets your requirements.)
