Auricchio Provolone

Our Auricchio Provolone Italian Provolone that is particularly sharp and is aged for a minimum of 6 months. It is often regarded as one of the best-tasting Provolones in the world. In Italian grocery stores, this cheese is often seen dangling by rope from the rafters, which makes it a very well known cheese throughout Italy. The aging process allows for the flavor of the cheese to develop over time, which ultimately adds character to its eventual taste.

A whole wheel weighs close to 120lbs.

Auricchio Provolone is primarily a product of cow farms, as it is made with cows' milk. Light yellow in color, it is a very smooth cheese, producing a strong aroma and offering a bold, nutty flavor. A full wheel of this aged Italian Provolone weighs around 120 lbs. If you plan to buy it in wheels, make sure to bring a few helpers!

We encourage all of our customers to try this cheese, as it typically gives people a whole new perspective on Provolone. In other words, it's not your typical sliced cheese. It goes well with various fruits and vegetables, as well as on a sandwich packed with lunchmeat and plenty of pickles. Donít forget the mustard! It also meshes well with a glass of wine or any of our antipastos.
