Grana Padano aged over 16 months
Milk and cream aromas still prevail in Grana Padano aged over 16 months, with more complex notes of butter and hay also appearing. These scents are mirrored in its distincitive savoury flavour which in turn stimulates salivation. After eating this type of Grana Padano, a light, subtle fattiness remains in the mouth.
The characteristics of this cheese are enhanced with slightly tannic red wines of medium intensity and a medium-long finish. Young, crisp wines, possibly with a pronounced bouquet in which the original grape aromas prevail.
