Grana Padano is classified as a DOP cheese meaning it is one of the elite cheeses in Italy. This cheese is known for two things: it is the world's first hard cheese, being over 1,000 years old. The Cistercian monks of Chiaravalle created it by the beginning of the millennium; by 1477, it was Italy's most popular cheese. This item can last a long time without spoiling, sometimes aging up to two years. It has a tangy, fruity flavor.
