Grana Padano

Cheese Type

Produced in four provinces of the Po Valley, this cheese is made in much the same way as the famous Parmigiano Reggiano. Made from partially skimmed milk, it exhibits a hard, thick and smooth dark yellow rind. The wheels are brined for four weeks after moulding and are then ripened in 85% humidity at a temperature of between 18-20°C for at least one to two years.

The large wheels are slightly convex in shape with an oily, golden rind. This rind encases a hard but crumbly interior that is white to straw yellow in colour. The result is a fine grained texture and fragrantly fruity flavour when young which develops a sweeter, stronger flavour with age.
