Parmigiano Reggiano DOP Aged 36 Months 500g
This mountain Parmesan cheese is artisanally produced at 1000m in the Apennines near Parma. Milk for the Parmesan is collected from open pasture grazing cows on local farms and every kilo of parmesan is produced with 14 litres of raw milk. Raw milk is simply unpasteurised and Parmigiano Reggiano cannot actually be called Parmigiano Reggiano if it is not made from it. The raw milk contributes to the complex, full flavour and aroma that makes Parmesan the King of Cheese! All DOP Parmesan must be aged for at least 12 months. Ours is matured for 36 months making it a deliciously nutty, crunchy cheese.
