Italian Cheese Grana Padano D.O.P. - Aged 16/18 months - 9 lbs. description:

Padano D.O.P - cow's milk hard cheese - aged 16/18 months - 9 lb/4 kg, Italy.

The name Grana means grainy, referring to the texture of the cheese. It was created by monks in the 12th Century who made cheese as a way of preserving milk. By 1477, it was one of the most famous cheeses of Italy. We imports our Grana Padano from Farm 539.

Farm 539 is produced right on the confines of two provinces, Parma and Piacenza, just outside the production zone of Parmigiano Reggiano and precisely in the municipality of Villanova sull’Arda in. The producer of this wonderful cheese is Latteria Sociale Stallone, which has been making cheese for more than 50 years. It relies on 15 farmers in the area to provide them with the milk to make the cheese. Before the demarcation of Parmigiano Reggiano in the 1950′s, Latteria Stallone’s cheese was called Parmigiano Reggiano.

A lot of companies import Grana Padano which is aged for only 12 months, which is a shame because it can be as old as 22 months in Italy. Our wheels are aged for a minimum of 18 months, often longer. This cheese is aromatic with a rich, full bodied flavor.
