Parmigiano Reggiano DOP 250g

The King of Cheeses

The Parmi¬≠giano Reg¬≠giano is regard¬≠ed to be among the top cheeses by cheese con¬≠nois¬≠seurs. The DOP des¬≠ig¬≠na¬≠tion states that for a cheese to be called as Pami¬≠giano Reg¬≠giano, it has to be pro¬≠duced from cows graz¬≠ing on fresh grass and hay. Parmi¬≠giano Reg¬≠giano cheese is named after the provinces in which it is made, name¬≠ly Provinces of Par¬≠ma, Reg¬≠gio Emil¬≠ia, Mod¬≠e¬≠na, Bologna and Mantua.

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

Real Parmi¬≠giano Reg¬≠giano has a hard, grit¬≠ty tex¬≠ture and is fruity and nut¬≠ty in taste unlike reg¬≠u¬≠lar Parme¬≠san that has bit of a bit¬≠ter taste. Dur¬≠ing mat¬≠u¬≠ra¬≠tion, Parmi¬≠giano-Reg¬≠giano gains its typ¬≠i¬≠cal gran¬≠u¬≠lar struc¬≠ture, and when cut it into sliv¬≠ers, it becomes crumbly and sol¬≠u¬≠ble. Deli¬≠cious, easy to digest and with a host of nutri¬≠tion¬≠al ben¬≠e¬≠fits, Parmi¬≠giano-Reg¬≠giano always exceeds expec¬≠ta¬≠tions. The unique taste of a prod¬≠uct made with¬≠out addi¬≠tives, with its con¬≠cen¬≠tra¬≠tion of pro¬≠teins, vit¬≠a¬≠mins, cal¬≠ci¬≠um and min¬≠er¬≠al salts make it per¬≠fect for all ages and for all sit¬≠u¬≠a¬≠tions, a ready source of use¬≠ful ener¬≠gy for everyone.


Parmi¬≠giano Reg¬≠giano cheese is most¬≠ly grat¬≠ed over pas¬≠tas ‚Äč‚Äömost famous¬≠ly used for the Clas¬≠sic Ital¬≠ian Car¬≠bonara recipe. It is also used in soups and risot¬≠tos. Some pre¬≠fer to eat as is. Pairs well with Pinot Gri¬≠gio, Pinot Blanc,off-dry Ries¬≠ling or even Gew√ľrz¬≠tramin¬≠er. All of which offer nat¬≠ur¬≠al sweet¬≠ness that can bal¬≠ance out the salti¬≠ness of the Parmi¬≠giano Reg¬≠giano nicely.

Pro­tect­ed by Tradition

Parmi¬≠giano Reg¬≠giano has been guar¬≠an¬≠teed for over sev¬≠en¬≠ty years by the Con¬≠sor¬≠tium and, above all, has been loved for over nine cen¬≠turies for its excel¬≠lent and inim¬≠itable flavour. An unmis¬≠tak¬≠able and unique prod¬≠uct for its aro¬≠ma and taste, the craft of its pro¬≠duc¬≠tion, its extra¬≠or¬≠di¬≠nary jour¬≠ney through a land¬≠scape of rivers, plains and hills, and its unpar¬≠al¬≠leled bal¬≠ance of knowl¬≠edge, man‚Äôs pas¬≠sion and nature‚Äôs bounty.
