Hay Cheese - A Friulian Excellence

Affienato cheese comes from the tradition of Friuli Venezia Giulia, where the Aviano latteria cheese is left to rest in barrels, wrapped in hay. This process, which lasts several months, allows the cheese to acquire herbaceous aromas that spread throughout the cheese.

Product Features

Affienato cheese is distinguished by its cooked lactic odor and its straw yellow colour, which varies according to maturation. The paste is compact with irregular holes and the consistency is hard and elastic. On the palate, it is delicate when fresh and tasty when more mature.

Origin and Producer

Artisanally produced in the heart of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Affienato cheese reflects the passion and dedication of local producers. The surface treatment with hay gives this cheese a unique and unmistakable character.

Consumer Experience

Affienato cheese enriches every culinary experience. Perfect to enjoy with honey and jams, it also pairs beautifully with Friulian white wines, offering an unforgettable sensory experience.
