Full Shipping Details
This very special semi-soft cheese comes from the Asiago region of the Italian Alps. A cheese that is easy to fall in love with, Trugole's fruity character is the result of rich milk from Alpine cows that graze on wild foliage and grasses in mountain meadows.

The high plains of the area known as Asiago, often referred to as the "Switzerland of Italy", include seven districts or boroughs. This region is well known for its rich grasses and pastures, and for magnificent fir trees. It is situated in the pre-Alps, north of Venice at an altitude between 1,000 and 2,000 meters. In the higher zones are the "Malghe" (or mountain pastures) where cows graze peacefully and some extraordinary cheeses are produced. In the smallest of the boroughs is a pasture by the very name of Trugole. Trugole is a small pasture surrounded by a forest of immense fir trees. It is breathtakingly beautiful, with some of the richest and most varied grasses found anywhere. It is here where they make Trugole cheese.

Trugole cheese, named for the rich pasture that produces it, is an artisan cheese, worked by hand from milk carefully selected from cows that eat only the forage from the grasses of this particular area. The cheesemaker uses only carefully selected cultures and a method of production that faithfully follows the traditional method from the mountains. Its curing and aging is also carried out in a very special manner. Each day the wheels are turned and treated with water and salt to preserve the soft texture of the paste (interior). After 60 days, the cheese reaches an ideal state for consumption.
