Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese – Aged 60 months
DISTINCTIVE QUALITIES: It’s not often you will come upon a Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese this special—aged for 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. All of our premium Parmigiano-Reggiano is aged for a minimum of 24 months when compared to 12 months for other brands.
However, this Red Cow Parmigiano-Reggiano is aged for an unheard of 5 years — this long aging process is the key to the bursts of zing you will savor in every bite. Some things taste better with age and we’ve revolutionized aging process with our luxury parmigiano reggiano cheese. Aging cheese for this long allows many complex chemical reactions to occur which beneficially enhance the taste and allow for more hearty flavors to develop.

BEHIND THE PRODUCT: Red Cows are a prized Italian breed of cows that were once near extinction. Originating from Hungary, Vacche Rosse produces extremely rich milk with a high-fat content. The proteins present in the milk allow for longer aging and permit better digestibility. The only ingredients are raw cow’s milk (grass-fed or hay-fed), salt, and calf's rennet.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: To fully appreciate its subtle notes, slice in cubes 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 Mike’s Hot Honey or balsamic vinegar. Grate atop a steaming plate of tagliatelle, or shave onto a refreshing arugula salad with a simple lemon vinaigrette.
