ASIAGO PDO CHEESE

The history of this cheese dates back thousands of years. It is made in a unique area using a traditional dairy recipe that has been handed down from generation to generation. A genuine delicacy, it is produced in two main varieties: Asiago DOP Fresco (Fresh Asiago PDO cheese) and Asiago DOP Stagionato (Aged Asiago PDO cheese).

THE AREA OF ORIGIN

A taste of nature and tradition.

A land where man has always lived in harmony with nature. A geographical area in which you will find rolling hills, spacious plains and valleys embraced by mountains. There is a special microclimate here in the Asiago highlands, so the local vegetation is characterised by great biodiversity.
This gift from nature that nourishes our cows produces fine milk, and fine milk is the secret of making the very best cheese.
