IMPT'D REGGIANO 1/4 WHEEL

IMPT'D REGGIANO 1/4  WHEEL
The general description is similar to most Parmigiano; a semi hard cheese, with medium fat, and is made from a traditional mix of partly skimmed, non pasteurized cow's milk that is only grass or hay fed. This producies a yellowish-golden and slightly oily rind, encasing an interior of ivory white to a straw-yellow color with a slightly gritty fine texture.

What sets a Reggiano light year apart from all other Parmigiano: like a fine wine, the lengthy ripening period gives a more fine grained texture with the presence of small white crystals which are indicative of the 24 month aging process. The result of this creation, in comparision, to other versions of Parmigiano is a deeper color with a lactic, fruity fragrant aroma and ultimately delicate, distinct nutty taste that melts in the mouth.

A true Parmigiano Reggiano must be manufactured in a strict regulated tradition and must come exclusively from the Northern Italian provinces of Parma , Reggio-Emilia and Modena including some zones of Mantua and Bologna. Each wheel created must meet all criteria to be decree an authentic Parmigiano Reggiano. It is under the control of the Italian Government with a legal trademarked stencil made by small dots in the letter’s (DOP) protected designation of origin .

Available in quarter wheels aproximately around 17lbs.
