The Gold of the Alps: Vezzena Cheese The Vezzena Cheese is often referred to as “the Gold of the Alps” because of its color. Its unique golden color is given by the milk that is collected daily in the mountain farms where cows are free to live outside and graze on grass.

At six months, the taste of the Vezzena Cheese is slightly sharp with a mid-grainy texture. Its aromatics profile is rich with a scent of roasted cashew mixed with pineapple. If aged over 30
