When Gennaro Auricchio founded his cheese shop in 1877, he did so with one purpose: to create the most delicious provolone in all of Italy. Utilizing a special rennet, Auricchio created a cheese that was rich, creamy, and nutritious — and the envy of every cheese shop in Italy. Since that day Auricchio has expanded its line of provolone cheeses but remains true to Gennaro's original formula.
