Piave DOP Mezzano is a semi-hard cheese produced following the heated curd technique. It's a semi-hard cheese, and presents an uniform consistency, with no holes present. The cheese, in alignment with its ageing times, is presented with a hard rind, with an matte hay-colored yellow tint.
The aromas of Piave Mezzano DOP are distinctly lactic, and are redolent of melted butter and milky whey.
Piave Mezzano DOP presents a well-balanced sweet and salty flavor, whereas the general scents are quite similar to the aromas. The primary difference between the aromas and scents is due to a delicate, lingering toasted note.
