Grana Padano DOP - Matured 16 Months (Avg. 850g)

This 16 month aged DOP Grana Padano is an incredible example of a matured Italian cheese and is available in 850g wedges.

Grana Padano is a traditional Italian hard cheese produced from semi-skimmed cow's milk. It has a wonderful aroma with hints of caramel and butterscotch, and a thick rind which is dark straw coloured. The interior is pale butter in colour and densely packed, with no holes or eyes.

The name comes from the noun grana ('grain'), which refers to the distinctively grainy texture of the cheese, and the adjective Padano, which refers to the valley Pianura Padana. Though similar to Parmigiano Reggiano, the younger Grana Padano cheeses are less crumbly, with a milder flavour.

We try our best to deliver the precise weight selected, the nature of cheese and their variable density can lead to variations in sizes.

In the instance that the hand cut cheese weight is greater than that advertised, we will not pass the additional charge on.

In the instance that the weight of the sliced cheese is significantly less than the advertised weight, we will at our discretion provide you with a voucher to cover the difference for your next shop.

We hope you find this approach fair.
