Description

A cheese closely related to Mozzarella, Provolone cheese is distinguishable by its fuller flavors, achieved through the use of more cheese cultures. Early cheesemakers originally used ropes to hang and cure Provolone cheese, then reused the ropes to transport the cheese by horseback. Provolone cheese is crafted from fresh local milk, brined, and hung to age in special curing rooms to develop its signature flavor and tantalizing aroma. This particular Aged Provolone, or 'Piccante', has been matured for at least 4 months, with a slightly darker and firmer texture than a mild Provolone cheese. Some consider this cheese to have a 'spicy' flavor, being a full-bodied, full flavored, and robust cheese. Each block is 8 ounces of Aged Provolone. Produced by Latteria Soresina in Soresina, Italy, this authentic Provolone makes a great addition to any cheese platter.

Aged Provolone review
By Karl Duchow

It has a good flavor, but needs to aged much longer to get drier and sharper. In my opinion, aged provolone should almost be crumbly. Perhaps you could add another category for super sharp aged provolone
