NOTES A peculiarity of Grana Padano (PDO) is that its taste, colour and texture can change, depending on the ageing time. Below is a brief descriptions of the sensory changes, according to the age of the Grana Padano cheese being sampled. Between 9 and 12 months of ageing, the flavour is ‘cleanŽ and not very complex, as the notes of milk and cream persist. Between 16 and 18 months, the hint of milk and cream is accompanied by notes of butter, hay and corn (a pleasantly floral aroma, sometimes reminiscent of olive brine), with a hint of meat broth. For cheese aged over 20 months, the dominant flavours are of butter, hay and a clear note of dried or toasted nuts. The hint of meat broth becomes more intense.
