Establishment year:
Fresh Asiago, Mature Asiago, Asiago Product of the Mountain

Asiago "Product of the Mountain" is the traditional cheese of the Asiago Plateau, which is strongly characterized by its fresh, milky and slightly floral smell, with a sweet and pleasant taste. The ripening process takes place in the mountains in the territory of the PDO between Veneto and Trentino regions at altitudes between 600 and 2,300 meters. The use of only italian mountain milk with the traceability certification is a guarantee of high quality.
