Parmigiano Reggiano PDO is the most popular and imitated cheese in the world; it is a unique product, made today as it was eight centuries ago.
It is a hard cheese, aged for a long period.
The Benedictine monks produced it for the first time in the thirteenth century; since then, very little has changed, as today dairymen use the same techniques and the same three ingredients: fresh cow's milk, salt and rennet.
In Parma, the native land of Parmigiano Reggiano, the Consortium of Organic Parmigiano Reggiano was established in order to protect and preserve animal welfare and to control the production of organic Parmigiano cheese. Cows are raised outdoors and eat herbs, hay and organic food which do not contain herbicides, fertilizers, pesticides and GMOs. Furthermore, animals are treated according to the principles of homeopathic medicine. Free cows make better milk; as a result, the cheese is better as well.
Indeed, the Parmesan cheese produced is also free from potentially harmful substances and is characterized by a more authentic taste and greater variety of flavours.
In addition, there are various positive effects on health: the content of vitamins A and E, which have an antioxidant power, is higher; Parmigiano Reggiano is also rich in Omega 3, which reduce the risk of contracting allergies and help protect against cardiovascular diseases.
The exceptional ageing of 60 months maximizes the already inimitable qualities of the best Parmigiano Reggiano.
The flavour of this product is intense and complex, and it is exciting to think that what you are purchasing today was created 5 years ago, has been ageing all this time on the wooden shelves of the appropriate rooms, has been checked by experts before being branded, to be then cut and packaged by hand in pieces of 500 gr.
This is a precious type of Parmesan cheese, to be tasted alone and to be shared with those who know how to appreciate it. It is excellent for your happy hour and to close a refined tasting. You should taste it with some drops of an excellent Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena or Reggio Emilia or excellent honey.
