Alpine Italian Cheese

Alpine Italian Cheese

Simply put, alpine cheese is cheese that is made in the Alps. Whereas countries like France and Switzerland heavily regulate alpine cheese as a style, Italy rules are much looser, resulting in a greater variety and wider range of alpine expressions. A sweet and fruity aged Asiago is every bit an alpine cheese as a crystal-flecked, almondy Piave, as is a Fontina val d’aosta that’s been pressed and washed to develop a truffly flavor and supple texture. While the spectrum of expressions is wide, Italy’s alpine cheeses are the result of the same herding culture and seasonal migration patterns that are found in other countries that produce alpines.
