This D.O.P. (Protected Designation of Origin) cheese is an Italian cow’s milk cheese that uses traditional methods dating back over 1,000 years. Asiago can be made in a number of styles, but Asiago Pressato refers to the young, soft version that is recognizable by its semi-soft paste and sweet, buttery flavor. After being aged for only 20 days, it has a slightly tangy and mild profile. Try this Italian cheese with similar Mediterranean snacks like Prosciutto di Parma and Castelvetrano Olives.

Just the Facts
ChiantiChianti is named for a region in Italy, and is actually made from a blend of grapes (mostly Sangiovese). This dry, medium-bodied wine has a distinct herbal quality (think rosemary and oregano) with flavors of dried plums and cherries.
Pair with: An herb-crusted cheese like Hudson Flower or a Tuscan Pecorino.
CiderBrie and apples, cheddar and apples – both delicious! Why not extend that deliciousness to apples in liquid form? Enjoy cider and cheese for a pairing to remember.
English style: drier, more like a beer, with nice acidity.
Pair with: Just about anything but we love it with firm natural rind cheese, like Landaff.
Basque/Normandy : barnyardy and funky, but still with a little sweetness.
Pair with: A beefy washed rind, like Grayson to contrast the sugar and bring out the funk.
American Cider: often, but not always on the sweeter side.
Pair with: Sweet and earthy Bleu Mont Bandaged Cheddar or malty Bleu d’Auvergne.
Pinot GrigioA lighter, crisper white wine. Tends to be refreshing and fruity, with aromas of stone fruit, peach, quince, and lemon.
Pair with: Creamy goat or mixed milk cheese with a crisp acidic element. La Tur or Brunet are great alongside the fruit-tart flavors of the wine.
