Trentingrana DOP

Although it falls with the area of the ‘Grana Padano’ DOP, the Grana produced in the province of Trento (particularly significant in the Val di Non area) can be distinguished from the others by the brand ‘Trentino’ that is clearly visible on the form. The milk from mountain areas (during the summer the pastures are at 7-800 metres) is used in its production, giving it a distinctive flavour that makes it stand out from other, similar products.
