This cheese is named for the town of Asiago in northern Veneto, where it is made, and Fresco, meaning fresh or young. Aged only a few weeks, the cheese retains its creamy texture and sweet, slightly tangy flavor. The richness in flavor and healthful qualities come from the cow’s diet of diverse Alpine grasses. As a name protected, artisan product, Italy’s DOC (Controlled Origin Denomination) requires this cheese to be made from this premium cow’s milk, making Asiago Fresco great for snacking, melting or pairing with wine and salumi.
