Provolone Mandarone


Provolone is a pasta filata cheese traditionally produced in the South of Italy. At the beginning of the 19th century, Provolone was introduced to Lombardy becoming so popular in that area as to be considered today a traditional italian cheese from Northern regions such as Lombardy, Emilia, Veneto and the Trento area. Being one of the most appreciated dairy products of the area, Provolone was awarded the status of PDO cheese in 1993, adopting the name of ‘˜Valpadana Provolone’™. Valpadana Provolone is produced in several formats. The one we propose is known as Mandarone cheese (Mandarone means ‘œlarge tangerine’), and is a long aged cheese. When matured for more than 12 months and in favorable conditions, the Mandarone cheese has a hard and granular texture, and a sharp bite balanced by toasted hazelnuts and caramel notes. Organoleptic properties Aspect and texture: the ripened forms have a hard, elastic paste of an intense yellow Taste: very flavourful, piquant with aromas developed during the ripening period Serving suggestions Full bodied, aged, red wines.
