Piave PDO Cheese

Piave PDO Cheese


Piave is a hard, cooked PDO cheese made in the province of Belluno, the northernmost part of the Veneto region in north-eastern Italy, bordering the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park. It can be made exclusively from milk that has been collected in the same area. It is distinguished by its flavour: sweet and intense, never spicy, with a full aroma reminiscent of Alpine herbs and flowers.
