Asiago is a cow's milk cheese, produced only on the Asiago plateau in the Veneto foothills in Italy. Traditionally it was made from sheep's milk, but today it is produced from unpasteurized cow milk.
In terms of texture, Asiago goes through many changes and assumes different textures according to its aging. There are two types of Asiago: fresh Asiago (Asiago Pressato) has a smooth texture, and the aged Asiago (Asiago d'allevo) has a crumbly texture.
