Provolone Picante (Lombardy, Italy) – Firm cheese made from cow’s milk. This cheese has a smooth rind and is often wrapped in twine. It comes in a variety of forms and may be shaped like a salami, melon, cone or pear; it may also have a spherical knob on the top. The taste varies from sweet to sharp depending on the type of rennet used. Veal rennet yields a sweet cheese; lamb or kid rennet yields one with a sharper taste.
The ripening period varies from one month to more than a year.
Pairs well with simple, inexpensive Italian reds such as Chianti Classico or beer.
Ingredients: raw cow's milk, salt, rennet, cheese cultures. CONTAINS: MILK.

All cheeses we slice to order and wrap in cheese paper as we want you to enjoy original flavor of cheese - not damaged by vacuum or plastic.
All meats which require slicing we slice to order and lay it out on wax paper (deli-style) so it is easy to separate slices. Then we pack it in a plastic pouch with nitrogen purge (again, to make it easy to separate pieces we don't vacuum the meats but use commercial style food grade inert gas mix).
