Try granular cheese, parmigiano competitor, that has unusual nutty aftertaste.
Grana padano cheese for the first time began to make by the monks from cow's milk, and now this cheese is considered one of the most popular in the world.
It's grainy, slightly salty cheese with an unusual nutty aftertaste. The main difference between this cheese and parmigiano - in the process of feeding the cows that give milk for its production. For parmigiano cows eat only grass and hay, whereas Grana Padano does not require such strict rules.
Grana Padano is perfect for red wine, it is eaten with a vegetable salad, figs, nuts and fruits.
You can buy cheese in the markets or in specialty shops around Milan. Pay attention to the marking - the real cheese will have DOP mark of quality.
