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.
