Piave Stravecchio (12 months)
Piave is a pasteurized cow’s milk cheese named after a river by the same name. It is DOP protected and the only authentic Piave is produced in the Dolomites area of Belluno province of Veneto. Also called, Parmesan’s Cousin due to apparent similarities in flavour, Piave is a hard, cooked curd cheese sold at five different maturation periods. As a thumb’s rule, Piave is dense in texture without any open holes.
The colour of the pate is white in Fresco, and it turns straw-coloured as the cheese matures. A sweet taste intensifies with the ageing. The rind is soft and clear when fresh and becomes hard and brownish colour with ageing.
Available in 200g portions.
