Piave/Montasio


Piave/Montasio cheese hails from Northern Italy made from pasturised cow’s milk. They have dense in texture without any open holes. The colour of the pate is white in fresco, which becomes straw coloured as the cheese matures. A sweet tasting cheese intensifies with aging. The rind is soft and clear when fresh becoming hard and brownish colour in advanced ages. We age them for up to two years in “The Vault”. This aging creates a nutty flavour while still retaining a hint of fruit.
