Monte Veronese d’Allevo DOP

Product

The ripened version (or ‘di allevo’) of Monte Veronese is the most traditional and is divided into two sub-categories, medium mature and extra mature Monte Veronese.  The limited mountain area of production and the use of raw milk makes this a particularly high quality cheese.
