  • Story of the Cheese: Auricchio Provolone is the preferred provolone throughout Italy and the rest of the world. The secret is the 'special rennet' used in the provolone. In 1877 in San Giuseppe Vesuviano near Naples, a company named 'Auricchio' was founded by Gennaro Auricchio - the inventor of this 'special rennet' or as people said, the 'secret of don Gennaro' - which gives Auricchio Provolone its unique taste. Auricchio Provolone gained fame quickly and by the end of the 19th century, the surname of its producer had become a byword for the cheese itself
