Monte Veronese

cheese from the Lessini mountains

The Lessini Mountains north of Verona are the cradle of this much-loved DOP cow's milk table cheese. If eaten young, it is sweet and intense; the aged Monte Veronese d’Allevo DOP has a more piquant flavour. The traditional Monte Veronese di malga, aged for two years, is also in the Ark of Taste.
