Similar to the better-known Auricchio brand, this imported sharp provolone is produced on the Padana plains in Cremona. A cow's milk cheese with a firm, smooth texture, these large wheels have always been considered a staple cheese in Italy. It starts with fresh, local milk, which gets brined, roped, and hung, where 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 melty sandwich.
Unless noted otherwise, Murray's cheeses sold by the lb. ship in multiple 0.5 lb increments. To request a whole wheel, or an intact portion of at least 2 lb, please contact the Murray’s team at email@example.com at least 72 hours prior to the date of shipment.

GinWhen picking out a cheese to nibble on while you sip your favorite gin cocktail, think bright and springy. Something fresh that will bring out the spirit’s citrusy, botanical notes.
