Oro del Tempo

Matured Montasio (or “Vecchio”) Oro del Tempo is a typical table cheese from the Friuli Venezia Giulia region and northeastern Veneto that is aged at least 10 months. It is a semi-hard, compact, cooked cheese that is white or straw-yellow in colour with regular, even holes. It is distinguished by its very aromatic and pleasantly sharp flavour. Great by itself as a tantalizing appetizer or as an entrée; when grated it stylishly adds flavour to first and second courses. It pairs nicely with robust, full-bodied red wines like Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso.
