Grana Padano DOP

Produced throughout a vast area comprising the largest regions in northern Italy (excluding the provinces in Emilia dedicated to the production of Parmigiano Reggiano), Grana Padano, when produced with the appropriate care and ripened for at least two years, is a high quality product for use in cooking and as a table cheese.  Guffanti selects and refines the production of a number of traditional cheese dairies in the typical areas of the Padano and, in particular, from the provinces of Piacenza and Cremona.
