cow's milk cheese from near Belluno

Named after the mountains of Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, this is a hard grainy cheese, similar to Parmesan but with mountain herby flavour. Locally it's known simply as cuc, the word for cheese.

The Ark of Taste includes the Carnia produced around Padola in the province of Belluno, using the milk of the brown alpine cows.
