Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese is made with 100% raw cow’s milk. Aged for a minimum of 24 months. Parmigiano is flavorful and complex, can be served as a table cheese or used to prepare different meals. Pairs great with any bold tuscan wine or dry fruits.
This Parmigiano is brought from selected creameries. It’s made between April and November to assure that the milk comes only from cattle fed with the fresh pastures in the authorized production area. This is called "zona tipica" and includes Reggio-Emilia, Modena and Parma. The real DOC Parmigiano only can be made in these places.
Serving Suggestions: Try it with carpaccio, prosciutto (we prefer a good Jamón Iberico with this cheese, but is up to you). This Parmigiano-Reggiano is definitely more than a simple grating cheese.
