Full Shipping Details
Montasio is a pasture-terraced mountain located to the northeast of Venice in the Friuli-Venezia region of Italy. The cheese Montasio was originally made by the monks who occupied the monastery that owned those pastures in the thirteenth century. Today, the cheese is a DOP cheese, which means its properties and production are protected by law. Montasio can now be made legally in all of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and parts of Veneto. Made in large wheels, the flavor of this 2-4 month old cheese is mellow with hints of milk, and slightly fruity. Since the mountain milk from which Montasio is made is high in butterfat, the cheese has a richer flavor.

Montasio Fresco goes well on bread, in salads, with sliced cooked vegetables, in salty strudels, flans and vegetables.
