Asiago is a cow's milk cheese, produced only on the Asiago plateau in the Veneto foothills in Northern Italy. The cheese-making tradition in this area dates back to more than thousand years. Traditionally, it was made from sheep's milk but today it is produced from unpasteurized cow's milk.
This "Mezzano” cheese is aged for four to six months and has a compact but yeilding texture and a fragrant, fruity taste that is fresh lactic and mild. Serve with Proscuitto, honey and almonds.
