Stravecchio Oro del Tempo

“Stravecchio Oro del Tempo” represents the top quality of Grana Padano cheese. A quality bestowed by 20 months of ageing which provides a cheese that is extraordinarily rich, intense and fragrant.

Like all precious things, Stravecchio Oro del Tempo cheese is one of a kind: when it reaches the maturing department, and every week thereafter until the twentieth month, it is checked to see if it meets the highest quality standards. The Consortium experts select those wheels that deserve to become “Grana Padano Riserva 20 mesi” by flame branding them. Then there is another selection: only the forms that meet the particular characteristics of intense taste, fragrance and crumbly texture become Stravecchio Oro del Tempo, with certificate of origin.

Every pieces is distinguished by the unmistakable seal and label with the serial number of the dairy, the place of origin, the month of production and the number of the product. This is a guarantee of absolute quality for the distributor and a reassurance for today’s attentive consumer.

Besides entire wheels, the Grana Padano Stravecchio Oro del Tempo line also includes a wide variety of formats and packs, from vacuum packed to thermoformed, grated and cubes.
 

Combinations

The strong character, full of complex and varied aromas, makes it an exceptional cheese, dedicated to true cheese connoisseurs and gourmets.

Distinguished by a slight hint of sharpness and a good persistence, it’s a cheese with a great deal of personality to be savoured throughout a meal, from the appetizer to the first course, from the second course to dessert.

It is ideal for thickening risottos, accompanying salamis and sausages and combines very well with balsamic vinegar, honey, marmalades and mustards.

Stravecchio Oro del Tempo is especially good as an appetizer cut into slivers and combined with a Pinot Grigio or a fragrant Lugana.

Excellent for an end of meal tasting, paired with a "meditation” wine.
