Originally an Italian ewes' milk cheese, Asiago is now made from cows' milk.
Springbank Cheese offers Domestic, American and Italian versions. Our Italian version is a D.O.P. (Demonimazione de Origine Protetta) cheese. A semi-firm
cheese that has a yellow interior, with small eyes, Asiago has a nutty richness
and sharp tang and is suitable for grating, or as an after-dinner or snack
cheese. Aged Asio is harder in texture than fresh varieties and offers a savoury flavour that is more piquant than sweet. Its rich aromas are reminiscent of butter, yeast, dried fruits, or some say, boiled chestnuts. Straw yellow in colour, firm and slightly spicy, aged Asiago is perfect for grating over pasta, rice, soup, salads, and vegetables. It also makes an excellent accompaniment to hearty breads, salamis, nuts and such fresh fruits as figs, apples, grapes and pears.
