Piave Fresco is pasteurized cow's milk cheese named after a river by the same name. It is DOP protected, and the authentic Piave Fresco is produced in the Dolomites area of the Belluno province of Veneto, Italy.
Piave Fresco (blue label) is aged for 20 to 60 days. The aroma is evocative of yoghurt and milk with a delicate, pleasant flavour. The soft paste of the cheese is ivory white in colour, while the rind is soft and light.

Piave Vecchio (aged for more than six months - blue label)
Piave Vecchio Selezione Oro (aged for more than one year - red label)
