DOP / PDO
Asiago is named after the village in Northern Veneto where it was first created. This "centuries old" cheese was originally made with sheep's milk, but over the years producers have switched to cow's milk. Fresco, quite simply, means "fresh" or "young". As its name states, this Asiago has been aged for only a few weeks, as opposed to aged Asiago which may mature for six to seven months.
Sweet and tangy, Asiago has a slightly salty aftertaste. It is firm in texture, easy to cut and melts beautifully. Use it to jazz up pizza, sandwiches, or toss in a salad.
