Condio is made from pasteurized cow's milk by affineur Sergio Moro in Piave Valley, Italy. This historic cheese dates back to the late 7th century, when the region was known as the Most Serene Republic of Venice.
Condio, meaning 'seasoned', is a cheese aged for three months or more. It is rubbed with several kinds of sweet and pungent Mediterranean spices, such as oregano, basil, mint thyme, marjoram, sesame and parsley. The result is a spicy flavoured rind and paste, which is also soft and mild in taste. The wheels are later wrapped in paper straw.
