Aged Provolone Cantina “FUSCO”

The Provolone from Cantina FUSCO is a cheese which has ripened for at least 6 months in the renowned Fusco family’s cellar. This cheese is made according to the Agerola traditional techniques and it has a limited run; its production takes place from late autumn to the beginning of spring and only if the milk has the required characteristics (fat, freshness, scent and flavor). The aging process takes place, of course in the cellar. The Provolone is especially suited for cutting boards, lately, however it goes well with many kinds of pizza where they drop it as the pizza comes out from the oven.
