Provolone Valpadana Mandarone Piccante, +/-5.5kg
Provolone valpadana is a stringy Italian cheese made from unpasteurised cow’s milk. It is produced using the technique of spinning the curds which is also the way in which mozzarella is made, a method that has been in use since the middle ages. Provolone valpadana has a generally sweet and delicate flavour which becomes spicier and more pronounced through age. There are two types of provolone available: Piccante and dolce. This Provolone piccante is aged for a longer period of time, giving it a significantly sharper taste than its younger brother, Provolone dolce. The word ‘mandarone’ refers to the shape so the Provolone valpadana, which resembeles that of a very large tangerine.
It is important to note that provolone valpadana is a DOP product, this stands for Denominazione di Origine Protetta. It is the Italian term for the EU system of Protected Designation of Origin, which encompasses the laws that protect the names of speciality food products with a specific geographic origin.
