Our Featured Italian Gourmet Cheese
Asiago Vecchio has an unmistakeably marked flavor, with a distinctive, slightly sharp taste. It is a semi-hard Italian gourmet cheese with a granular texture, is scattered with small to medium-sized holes and has a strawlike color.
It is usually made in the late autumn-winter period with semi-skimmed milk, specifically chosen from the splendid high mountain pastures of the Trentino region and the Asiago plateau, which, together with its long natural ageing, guarantee its quality and bring out its rich flavor.
It is an excellent table cheese, that aged for approximately 1 year and can be eaten alone or with typical regional dishes.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound. read more...
