Type of milk
Allevo Asiago is divided, according to its ripening, into three types: medium aged (six months), mature (one year) and extra-mature (two years). Similar to other northern Italian cheeses, its origins lie in the mountains, or, more precisely, in the Asiago high plateaux region. It subsequently spread down to the plains of the surrounding provinces and, as frequently happens, a fresh cheese version called Pressed Agiago was also created. Allevo Asiago is occasionally incorrectly called “Vezzena” due to a degree of similarity between the two.
