Named after the Piave River, Piave Cheese is a stunning Italian cheese originated in the Belluno Region. It is DOP protected, as it is the only authentic Piave cheese produced in the Belluno. This cheese is also known as Parmesan’s Cousine because it has a similar flavour as Parmesan cheese.
It is aged for 6 months to make it dense in texture and becomes straw coloured as it matures. Its surface is covered with a soft rind which becomes hard and brownish in colour as it ages. Its sweet, mild and delicate taste makes it a perfect pairing with full-bodied red wine like Amarone and Barolo.
Similar in texture and appearance to Parmigiano Reggiano, this cheese offers fruity notes with a bright and buttery finish. If you want to amp up the flavour of your dish, try using Piave Cheese. It is perfect for grating, pasta, soups, adding it to salads or anything you can think of.
It will also do wonder on your cheese board and make your snack more delicious.
