Piave

$10.50

Piave comes to us form the Piave River Valley of Belluno, Italy, north of the Emilia-Romagna region that’s so famous for their Parmigiano Reggiano.  Piave is similar in many ways to its famous cousin, but made in a smaller format that allows for easier handling and more rapid aging. 

Our Piave is sold at a minimum of 12 months, at which point the cheese has a firm, dense texture with a slight crunch.  The flavors are predominantly sweet and nutty, similar to a young Parmigiano Reggiano.  Piave is a great alternative to Reggiano if you’re looking for a similar flavor and texture but with a little less bite.  This cheese is a little promiscuous when it comes to wine, pairing beautifully with reds across the board and even many white wines, making it a great choice for a wine tasting that includes many different varietals.  Piave can also be used wherever you might use Reggiano in the kitchen – grated over salads, pasta, or stuffed into a chicken breast.

  1. I loved this cheese.

    Posted by maryjura on 29th Sep 2010

    The cheese was very fresh and flavorful. So much better tasting than anything I can buy prepackaged. With cheese of this quality, freshness is so important because left in a store's deli case, it could pick up unwanted flavors marginalizing it quality.
