A hard, cooked curd cheese, compact with a friable, soluble structure; its flavour is strong, decidedly fruity and never sharp, making it an absolutely unique and unmistakeable cheese. With longer aging, i.e. more than 6 months, Piave cheese acquires aromas and flavours that set it aside from all other cheeses.
