Provolone Valpadana is a specific type of Provolone cheese produced in the Valpadana region of Northern Italy. It is known for its high-quality standards and is recognized as a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) cheese, ensuring it is produced using traditional methods in the designated region and meets specific quality criteria.

The cheese has a semi-hard to hard texture. It can vary from slightly crumbly to firm, depending on its age. The longer it is aged, the firmer and more crumbly it becomes. The cheese has a rich, full-bodied flavour with a hint of spiciness. The taste becomes more pronounced and complex as it ages, making it a favourite among those who appreciate bold cheese flavours.

It is available in various types, ranging from a few months to several years. Younger versions have a milder flavour, while older ones develop a stronger, spicier taste.

Provolone Valpadana is versatile and can be enjoyed as a table cheese. It is also used in cooking and baking.
