This sampler features four cheeses that are typical of four distinct regions of Italy:
Please note that any item temporarily out of stock will be substituted with a similar item of equal value.
- Provolone Piccante - The piccante (sharp) version of this classic Italian cheese is more complex than the younger dolce version. Provolone is great on sandwiches or chunked into an antipasto salad. (7.5 oz)
- Grana Padano Stravecchio - The original hard Italian cheese, Grana Padano is a firm, dry, fruity cow's milk cheese from the Po Valley of Northern Italy. Stravecchio is aged for an optimal 20 months. Grate it over pasta, vegetables or soup, or serve it as a table cheese drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. (7.5 oz)
- Mountain Gorgonzola - Italy's famous blue cheese comes from Lombardy. Made from whole cow's milk taken from local herds that graze on beautiful rolling pastures, no Italian Cheese Assortment would be complete without a cut of authentic Gorgonzola. (7.5 oz)
- Pecorino Toscano - This soft, 3 month sheep's milk cheese is made in the hills of Tuscany. It is young, sweet and springy. A natural partner with pears! We find that this combination well represents the wide variety of flavors and textures found in Italian cheeses. (7.5 oz)
