An Italian cheese, from the province of Verona, that is made with either whole or skimmed cow's milk. The skimmed milk cheese is referred to as "d'allevo." As a semi-cooked cheese, the rind of this cheese is thin and somewhat rubbery. Inside, the straw-colored cheese has an open texture with numerous small holes. Monte Veronese is made into small wheels that are aged for several months, but often aged for a year or longer, becoming semi-hard to hard with a sharp, tangy flavor.

  • Fresh Monte Veronese is made from whole milk, has a brief aging period and has a sweet, intense flavor.
  • Monte Veronese d’Allevo is hard paste Monte Veronese, made from skimmed milk, is aged longer and is slightly piquant.
