Parmigiano Reggiano

Not all Parmigiano-Reggiano is the same.

Not all the wheels that bear the world famous Parmigiano-Reggiano name are created equal. There are big differences from one to the next.

This cheese is made by a dairy nearly 2,000 feet up in the hills outside of Modena, Italy. The high altitude makes for plenty of diversity in the grasses, herbs and flowers growing in the cows’ pastures. This means that the milk—and subsequently, your cheese—is full of each pasture's complex flavors. The wheels are aged for a minimum of two years (33% longer than the Consorzio minimum).

Most important, the finished cheese has a really rich, wonderfully complex flavor with a lovely, long finish. And it has none of the bitterness or mouth burn that often mars the final flavor of others. Outstanding. Our most popular cheese by a wide margin.

The current wheels we're opening were made in December 2011. They're fruity, slightly citrus and have a nice, subtly sweet finish.
