Buonatavola® Provolone

$15.00/Lb


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.

Pour a glass of...
  • Chianti

    Chianti is named for a region in Italy, and is actually made from a blend of grapes (mostly Sangiovese). This dry, medium-bodied wine has a distinct herbal quality (think rosemary and oregano) with flavors of dried plums and cherries.

    Pair with: An herb-crusted cheese like Hudson Flower or a Tuscan Pecorino.

  • Lagers and Kolsch

    Lager, Dunkel, Schwarz, Pilsner, Kolsch Ale

    Lagers run the gamut from crisp, pale Pilsners to dark-malted Dunkels and Märzens. Flavors are typically approachable and mellow, a delicate balance of toasted bread, gentle sweetness, and mild hop bitterness for structure.

    Pair with: Almost any firm, mild cheese like Tomme de Savoie or Landaff Creamery Landaff.



  • Pinot Grigio

    A lighter, crisper white wine. Tends to be refreshing and fruity, with aromas of stone fruit, peach, quince, and lemon.

    Pair with: Creamy goat or mixed milk cheese with a crisp acidic element. La Tur or Brunet are great alongside the fruit-tart flavors of the wine.
