Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese – Aged 5 Years
- Aged 5 years
- Made with milk from Italian Red Cows
One wedge, hand-cut from a full wheel
- 10 - 14 oz
It’s not often you will come upon a Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese this special—aged a remarkable 5 years, this is not just "parmesan," but true Parmigiano-Reggiano—made from the milk of rare Red Cows (or Vacche Rosse). Crack it in half, lean in close and discover notes of toasted chestnuts, sweet grass, and green tea. Every bite offers an intense hit of umami with surprising crackles from its savory quartz-shaped protein crystals.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: To fully appreciate its subtle notes, "cube" by gently pressing a pointed cheese knife to gently pry a piece from the wedge. Serve as-is on a cheese board and enjoy with the finest honey or balsamic vinegar. Or grate atop a steaming plate of tagliatelle, or shave onto a refreshing arugula salad with a simple lemon vinaigrette.
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Italy (Reggio Emilia)
