Monteo

Monteo is a semi firm cheese produced by La Casearia creamery in the Veneto region of Italy. It is made using cow's milk sourced from farms in the Veneto hills. The cheese takes its name from Montello, a hilly area in the province of Treviso, where La Casearia Carpenedo is located.

Monteo has a pale yellow paste with 'eyes' of dissimilar shapes and sizes. It smells of fresh milk with lingering notes of butter and sharp milky aftertaste. Pair it with a Sauvignon Blanc.
