Asiago is a whole milk cheese that originated in Northern Italy, around the Po River Valley near the Trentino Alto Adige region, where Italy borders Austria. Coming from the mountains, Asiago is similar to other mountain cheeses, such as Switzerland’s Gruyere or France’s Beaufort. Like other mountain cheeses, Asiago is made in large wheels designed for long-term aging to get through tough winters. Dense and flavorful, Asiago’s flavor profile changes as time polishes the wheels over the course of several months or years. Taken from the milk of cows grazing on the grasses and wildflowers of the mountains, Asiago can have a fresh, fruity flavor, or a savory, zesty taste on the palate.

This fabulous cheese is produced in the northernmost part of the Verona province since medieval times, when the Lessinia valley was occupied by the Germanic tribe of Cimbrians. Other say that its production was introduced in this area by immigrants from Lombardy. A gastronomic tour is recommended to gourmet travellers to find out the typical product which gained the DOP recognition in 1996: the Monte Veronese cheese. Furthermore, the Consorzio di Tutela del Monte Veronese was founded to preserve its territory of origin, its method of production and, indeed, its authentic flavour. Monte Veronese DOP (or POD) is made only from cow’s milk. But the factor that makes this cheese so unique is that the milk is exclusively taken from cows bred in the Lessinia valleys. This element, together with the period of ageing – safeguards its organoleptic properties and original aroma of grass. You can recognize Monte Veronese varieties by the label colour and by the denomination clearly marked on them.

Piave is an Italian cow's milk cheese, that is named after the Piave river.

Dolceterra Cheese Refined With Pear
During the autumn when pears are harvested, the forms are cleaned and immersed in a mixture obtained from the maceration of Williams pears where they are left to rest for a period of time that varies according to the weight. Then they are removed from the vats, dried and maturation begins, which can last up to eight months. The pears give this semi-fat cheese a delicateness and likeability that makes it a perfect pairing for dry medium bodied and mid structured white wines.
A typical product of the Po Valley, Grana Padano is a fine and delicious cheese that is a symbol of “Made in Italy” gastronomic excellence throughout the world.
Made from low-fat raw cow's milk, it is a hard semi-fat cheese, fine grained, white or straw yellow in colour, enclosed in a hard, dark yellow rind that is smooth and thick. It has a fragrant aroma and a distinctive and persistent taste. It is aged an average of 16 months.
Tuscan Pecorino Aged DOP
This cheese is our best-selling Pecorino Toscano from Italy, but aged for an additional three to four months by the cheese masters at Il Forteto in Tuscany. Pecorino Toscano Stagionato DOP is created from locally collected sheep's milk during September and June. As it ages, the cheese loses its milky white color and takes on a hay-colored, ivory hue. The sweet, silken texture of the original cheese slowly gives way to a sharp, zesty flavor with a brittle texture. Pecorino Toscano Stagionato DOP is perfect for chunking into romaine and dandelion green salads, or rolled in extra virgin olive oil and served as part of an antipasto tray. Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.

Caciocavallo Cheese Semipiccante 'Medium Strong'
The delightfully named caciocavallo (literally “cheese on horseback”) originated in the southern regions of Italy in the 14h century and is thought to be a descendant of the first cheeses ever made in ancient Roman times.
Today’s caciocavallo is made of cow’s milk and has a mild, slightly salty flavour and firm, smooth texture when young (about 2 months). As it ages, the flavour becomes sharper and the texture more granular. It is one of the pasta filata types of cheese, like provolone and mozzarella, which means it has been stretched and shaped by hand.
Castelmagno Cheese Aged
Castelmagno has been made in the mountains around Cuneo since the twelfth century. Today, its production is regulated through the DOP certification- a European Union legislation aimed to protect the traditional production of certain typical products. The DOP area of Castelmagno is restricted to Cuneo and a few of the nearby towns and villages, making its production quite exclusive and scarce. Only a few cheeses are made every year and let season in humid condition. This creates a rusty-colored mold on the rind, and sometimes for cheeses seasoned for longer than six to eight months the blue veins of mold appear in the white cheese paste, making it more similar to gorgonzola.
Cheese Bowl - Handmade
A nice cheese bowl to keep the shredded cheese and serve it on the table always fresh. Perfect gift idea!. Made in Italy.
Tuscan Pecorino "Il Forteto Black King"
Pecorino aged for at least 4-5 months. The black crust reminds us the peasant's custom to protect the cheese greasing it with olive-oil's dregs and ashes to extend the conservation. The paste is white, friable, lightly rough. Very tasty, with a complete flavour.
The paste is at the same time compact and buttery, with a colour between white and straw and a delicate taste that masks a slightly sharp streak to the palate, thanks to over 100 days of aging. Suggestions: Ideally enjoyed with a glass of Chianti Classico accompanied by Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Aged. Excellent for use in various gastronomical preparations or accompanied by pears.
Ingredients Pasteurized sheep's milk, salt, rennet, lactic ferments. Rind not edible dyed with iron oxide, covered by protective film.
Asiago Cheese "Trugole" 90 days Aged
Asiago Cheese "Trugole" 90 days Aged 1.10 lb.

Produced as a cow's milk cheese, Trugole is formed into washed-rind wheels weighing from one to six pounds. The cheese is allowed to mature for two to three months. During this aging process, it develops a straw-colored semi-firm paste that has a mild fruity flavor.
Trugole is an excellent cheese for snacking, for serving with crusty breads, or for melting over various dishes.
Braid Smoked Scamorza
Our expert cheese-makers braid the pasta filata by hand and give it the typical shape of a braid, which takes its typical smoky colour and delicate taste thanks to the natural smoking process.
Excellent to be eaten row as appetizer, cooked on the griddle, or to enrich pizzas and oven-baked dishes.
