Extra Aged Piave Cheese
This cheese is aged for at least 12 months. Substitute for parmesan or enjoy on it's own to savor its fruity, nutty flavor.
From the Veneto region of Italy comes Piave, a cheese of protected origin (PDO). Reminiscent of Parmigiano Reggiano, Piave could be called Parm’s softer-spoken cousin. The flavors are similar, but not so bold, and the texture is much smoother without the coarse crystallization of Parmigiano Reggiano. The consistency is hard and dense with a pleasant chew. Piave has a savory cooked milk flavor with a slight sweetness and a suggestion of tropical notes. Piave can be used for a wide variety of applications and is a good substitute for many hard Italian cheeses.
Piave is sold at various stages of maturity, but this one is the blue label 'vecchio' aged between 6-12 months.
