Provolone is a stretched curd cheese that, due to its peculiar malleability during processing is characterised by a wide range of shapes; it can be shaped like “bacon” or “salami”, like a “tangerine” shaped with the characteristic “segments” or like a “flask”.
Two different Provolone varieties are available:
- “Dolce” (mild), made with calf rennet and matured no longer than 2-3 months;
- “Piccante” (spicy), made with kid goat and/or lamb rennet paste and matured from 3 months to over one year.
Our products’ nutritional values: Provolone Soresina
The Latteria’s mild provolone best reveals all aspects of its complex flavour when paired with Ribolla Gialla, particularly one made from biodynamically-grown grapes.
The lively and enticing taste of Soresina’s spicy provolone pairs well with the dry and vibrant notes of a traditional
Lugana Doc from Lombardy.
