Casatella Trevigiana cheese

Casatella Trevigiana is an artisan, DOP, soft cows' milk cheese from small farms in province of Treviso in the Veneto region of Italy. The origin of the name comes from the dialect Casatella Treviso, meaning "house or home" and refers to any product, cheese, bread, sausage, polenta, made in the family, and as such regarded as authentic and healthy.

Nowadays, Casatella Trevigiana is produced throughout the year thanks to mechanisation. It is a mild-flavoured cheese and is creamy, simple and delicate. It incorporates the features of tradition and innovation that make it one of the most popular dairy products with its fresh and nutritious qualities.

Of medium strength, the cheese is known for its characteristic sweet taste of cows' milk, simple, delicate, soft and slightly creamy, melts in your mouth and is white to cream in colour. Matured for 10-15 days, the natural rind is barely perceptible and it has a soft, milky and fresh aroma.

Under DOP regulations, the milk must only come from the province of Treviso, to ensure a limited period of time between collection and processing, the rest of the process (production of the cheese, maturing and packaging) must take place within the production area.
