Tradition is still strong in Asiago, and it is not unusual while driving through the area to have to pull the car over to the side of the road to let dozens of cows, Bruna or Grigia Alpina or even Rendena, pass on their way to or from the Alpine pastures. Over 60 mountain dairies are still active in the Sette Comuni area, but only a dozen make aged Asiago, producing a total of around a thousand cheeses each year. The aged Asiago has scents ranging from cut grass to ripe fruit to musk, and offers an extraordinary complexity of flavors.
Aged Asiago is made in the summer, from June to September, and must age for at least 18 months.
