Asiago is a cow's milk cheese produced in Italy, that can assume different textures according to its aging, from smooth for the fresh Asiago (called Asiago Pressato) to a crumbly texture for the aged cheese (called Asiago d'Allevo) The aged cheese is often grated in salads, soups, pasta, and sauces while the fresh Asiago is sliced to prepare panini or sandwiches; it can also be melted on a variety of dishes.
Asiago d’Allevo Stravecchio is a semi-firm, aged, raw, cow’s milk cheese. Asiago 'Stravecchio' (meaning "very old") is aged for over 18 months and has a very hard and grainy paste. The interior of this semi-hard cheese is amber-colored with an intense, piquant taste. Asiago d'Allevo is often grated as a table cheese for salads, soups, and pasta. Pairs well with Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc. Veneto/Trentino Italy. 7oz
