Type of Milk: Blend of Cow and
At least 18 Months
Sovrano is fairly new cheese that is similar in both color and texture
to Parmigiano Reggiano and Grana Padano but is made from a mix of cow's milk and buffalo milk. Manufactured by Latteria Mauer
In Lombardy, Italy, Sovrano is a unique cheese that is aged for a minimum of 18 months. Its uniqueness is that most cheeses
produced with buffalo milk are stretched curd cheeses such as mozzarella. Marketed as buffalo Parmigiano Reggiano, Sovrano
is firm, crumbly yet creamy, with a crystallized and granular texture. The rind is hard and bright white in color, whereas
the interior is more ivory colored. Rich and nutty in flavor, it has a stronger tangy finish than Parmigiano Reggiano.
