Type of milk
Alpe Vaia is a hard-semi-skimmed milk cheese, produced only in summer in the alpine Area of Alpe Vaia (Forests of Lombardy) with raw milk and a small addition of saffron. The Alpe Vaia area is in the town of Bagolino.
This cheese is made by only one producer and this peculiarity makes it unique. As it is only produced during summer, the milk used to make this cheese is produced by grazing cows.
