Piave

An Italian, grana-style cheese, where the milk is skimmed before production to prevent spoiling and allowing the cheese to age for longer periods of time. Named after the river which flows through the region, Piave has DOP status under European Union regulations. Authentic Piave is produced in the Dolomites mountain range, in the province of Veneto.
