Piave Vecchio Selezione Oro (red label) is pasteurized cow's milk cheese named after a river by the same name. It is DOP protected, and the only authentic Piave Fresco is produced in the Dolomites area of Belluno province of Veneto.

The Vecchio Selezione Oro, a matured variety of Piave, is offered only after it reaches its full potential at one year of ageing. It is hard, grainy and crumbly with a flavour that is mild and never sharp. With longer ageing, it develops a very intense, fruity flavour with an enduring taste. The hard pate of the cheese is intense and straw-coloured, while the rind is smooth, even, intense ochre colour. 

Other varieties of Piave are: 

Piave Fresco (aged for 20 to 60 days - blue label)
Piave Mezzano (aged for 61 to 180 days - blue label)
Piave Vecchio (aged for more than 6 months - blue label)
Piave Vecchio Riserva (aged for more than 18 months - black label)
