Similar to the better-known Auricchio brand, this imported sharp Provolone is produced on the Padana plains in Cremona. Made of pasteurized cows' milk with a firm, smooth texture, the large, aged wheels for Provolone has always been considered a staple cheese in Italy. The Provolone takes fresh, local milk and when it's brined, roped, and hung, the flavor develops over time. Salty, tangy, and spicy, this Italian offering adds a satisfying kick to any selection of antipasti, or well-constructed sandwich. Pop the top on a bottle of a pale Pilsner as a mellow partner to your toasted and melty sandwich.
