Looking for an alternative to Parmigiano, this old Asiago cheese, Asiago Stravecchio, may be the one for you. This Italian gourmet cheese is granualar in structure, easy to grate, the flavor is interestingly sweet and mildly sharp.
Asiago Stravecchio is made in the Trentino mountains and the Asiago plateau. It is aged for 1 year and has enough flavor to be savored on its own, try some shavings with a full-bodied red wine. The thin slices will bring out the flavor in a surprising way. It goes without saying that this cheese will also do wonders on or in your Italian creations.
We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
