Grana means grainy and that is pretty true to the texture of this cheese. The Grana Padano is granular in texture and very sweet in flavor. The cheese is made from unpasteurized, semi-skimmed cow €™s milk and generally aged for two years. At the end of the cheese making process, Grana Padano develops a firm, thick and deeply straw-colored rind protecting the fragrant, dry, flaking interior. As Grana Padano ages, the flavors become pronounced, savory and complex and the texture becomes more crumbly. Try pairing the cheese with a Barolo, Zinfandel or Gavi white wine.
