GranCacione DeMagi – 
20 months whole shape

GranCacione is a “Grande” (big) “Cacio” (cheese) which means big cheese, a wheel. Our affineur carries out his selection by tapping each wheel all around. Only if a “wheel” is perfect will we then brand it with our name and logo. This is an excellent cheese not excessively aged, with superb taste and balanced flavour.
