Curiosity Asiago is one of Italy's most common PDO cheeses. The Presidium, however, is dedicated exclusively to the Stravecchio (aged 19 months or more), an extremely rare product made in mountain dairies on the Asiago plateau. Slow Food would like to encourage farmers to mature more wheels for a long time and to let them realise how important small dairies are for the protection of montains and ancient traditions
Our selection This Asiago Stravecchio is produced in Malga Verde by Cortese family, and have earned many awards as the best Asiago Stravecchio
Suggestions Perfect with a good polenta made with Biancoperla corn flour, if possible cooked on a wood fire and in a copper pot

Malga Verde - Conco (VI) - Veneto

Why we chose them
Located at an altitude of 1100 meters above sea level and completely renewed at the beginning of 2000, Malga Verde is a young company still managed by Maurizio Cortese, who founded the business together with his brother Cristiano, and today has been joined by his three sons, Milady, Michele and Davide, who left their respective office works to face this new challenge in the name of tradition. During the summer pasture, from June to mid-October, everyone is involved in the activities: Milady takes care of the store, Michele works in the dairy, Davide takes care of the communication while their father Maurizio continues to follow the breeding. In 2018, a farmhouse was also opened to be able to taste the products of Malga Verde directly on site
