Asiago Fresco signifies the dairy tradition as it exists in the Asiago Plateu between the Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige regions. The cheese began as a sheep milk cheese around the tenth century, with the cow milk version becoming increasingly common over subsequent centuries.
Formaggi Ciresa is a leading affinatore of Lombardia. Their work includes selection, aging, packaging, and distribution of cheese, particularly the traditional cheese families of Lombardia: Stracchino, Gorgonzola, Latteria & fresh cheese.
Founded in 1927, their multi-generational relationships with cheesemakers allow for incomparable representation of these regional styles, in addition to PDO cheeses throughout Italy.
