Asiago is an Italian-style cheese made from whole cow's milk. Fresh or young asiago has a mild flavor and smooth texture, while asiago that has been aged at least four months has a more crumbly texture and pungent flavor.
Considered an alpine-style cheese, asiago has a nuttier, creamier flavor that gets sharper as it ages, and a texture that can range from smooth to crumbly, depending on the age. Parmesan, on the other hand, has an intense and pungent flavor and crumbly texture that makes it great for grating. Also, asiago is generally moister than parmesan or, making it a better cheese for melting.
