Italy: Asiago Cheese Production

This page provides, in a given period of time, data related to Italian production of Asiago cheese in both types: Asiago
  • Asiago pressato (fresh): aged for 20 days and wheel range from 11 kg to 15 kg;
    (organized by Provinces and Regions here);

  • Asiago d'allevo (mature): aged from 4 to 6 months ("mezzano"), to one year or longer (maximum 2 years) only for 8-12 kg per wheel cheese.
    (organized by Provinces and Regions here).
Production figures are represented on the two graphs at the bottom of the page.

The Asiago cheese is a high quality P.D.O. product.

Asiago cheese production area is located in the north east of Italy (Venetian Region and Trentino) and in particular in four provinces: the whole area of Vicenza and Trento and part of Padua and Treviso.

The milk collection and production areas is set by law.
Each wheel is numbered and its authenticity is guaranteed by a brand on the side of the wheel and by a certificate issued by "Consorzio di tutela per il formaggio Asiago". The number indicated on the wheel allows to find out the date of its production, the producing process characteristics and the name of the relevant milk producer.

The Asiago cheese is quoted weekly on the markets of Milan and Thiene.
