Grana Padano Cheese


4 oz

Bearing strong resemblance to Parmigiano-Reggiano, Grana Padano is made throughout the Po River Valley in northeastern Italy. The rind is firm, waxen and deeply straw-colored, protecting a fragrant, dry, flaking paste with sweet, nutty flavor that is never tangy. Grana means ''grain'' and, as the name implies, the cheese has a fine granular quality with a sweet, nutty little bite. Murray's Grana Padano is aged for at least 20 months. This product is made from raw milk.
