Way more than a bagel topping, this DOP Asiago has an unmistakable marked flavor, with a distinctive, slightly sharp taste. It is a semi-hard cheese with a granular texture and small to medium-sized scattered holes, straw-like color. It is usually made in the late autumn-winter period with semi-skimmed milk, specifically selected from the best high mountain pastures of the Trentino region and the Asiago plateau, which, together with its long natural ageing, guarantees its quality and bring out its rich flavor.
Sottocenere al Tartufo is a truffle-infused Italian cheese made with pasteurized cow's milk in the northern region of Veneto. Its name meaning "under ash", is derived from the layer of ash that covers the cheese as it ages.
It is a pale yellow, semi-soft cheese. Black truffles are added in the paste which is then aged in ashes. A green leaf and spices like nutmeg, coriander, cinnamon, liquorice, cloves, and fennel on the rind retain the aroma of the cheese.
Toma Piemontese made in the Piedmont region of Italy from pasteurized cow’s milk. The aroma, flavor, pate and texture of Toma Piemontese vary depending on whether it has been produced with whole fat milk, or if it is a semi-fat version with skimmed milk. In the first case, the pate is straw yellow with evenly distributed “eyes”, sweet, pleasant flavor and a delicate fragrance. The rind is elastic and smooth and appears deep straw-yellow to reddish brown based on the seasoning. If the cheese has been made from skimmed milk, it has a wrinkly and not elastic rind, straw white pate and tiny eyes and an intense flavor that varies with seasoning
