It is guaranteed by the European Union, one of the few products awarded the special D.O.P. qualification (Protected Denomination of Origin). In fact, a cheese like Montasio must be made in compliance with the standards set forth by the CONSORZIO:

  • the production area, which includes the Friuli region,  the Eastern Veneto in the provinces of Belluno and Treviso and some areas of the provinces of Padua and Venice.
  • a very accurate monitoring of the quality of the raw material and its evolution into cheese.
  • the technology: an artisan technology built on years of tradition, that promotes the slow changes in the product’s composition and reinforces its nutritional characteristics.
  • the branding of cheese, with the trade mark of the Consorzio per la Tutela del Formaggio Montasio ("Consortium for the Protection of Montasio cheese"), guaranteeing its origin and the observance of all the characteristics stipulated in the regulations.

These factors, all together, are the best safeguard of the origin and the uniqueness of Montasio cheese.

The characteristics of Montasio cheese change with the maturing (aging) process. Its taste, which is mild and delicate when it is fresh, becomes stronger and full of flavour as it matures. Its texture changes as the time goes by, from white and compact with smooth and flexible rind when the cheese is fresh; it becomes grainy and crumbly as the rind dries and darker as the cheese matures.

It is produced in perfect shapes, suitable for the kitchen table and restaurants. It is excellent for all ages and because it is so easy to digest, is especially suitable for children and elderly people.

Thanks to its versatility and to its three different types of maturity a cheese like Montasio can find a place on the table at almost any occasion: it can be eaten as an appetizer and with aperitifs. It can be either part of the first course, or eaten on its own as a main course.
