Parmigiano Reggiano DOC – G.Cravero
Parmigiano Reggiano is known as the king of Italian cheeses. Selected by Giorgio Cravero for sale to Australia at up to two years of age, this outstanding example has a succulent, moist texture with nutty notes and a complex, fruity sweetness that is makes this cheese stand out from the competition.
A little history
This benchmark two-year-old ‘mountain’ cheese has impeccable regional provenance. Each wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano is hand made in the San Pietro Dairy– producer number 2659 – in the Appennini hills of Modena using raw milk from a small herd of less than 100 cows. Massimo & Laura Libra from San Petro Dairy produce only six wheels of cheese per day. After meticulous maturation at the dairy for 12 months, the finest cheeses are graded by Giorgio Cravero and taken to Bra, in Piedmont, for ripening. The unique flora & herbage found in this region produces a truly exceptional cheese.The Cravero family has been maturing cheese in Bra – home of the world-renowned bi-annual Slow Food Cheese festival – since 1855.
True Parmigiano Reggiano is a revelation of taste – a succulent, moist texture with nutty notes & a complex fruity sweetness – delicious with a glass of Prosecco.
