The Parmigiano Reggiano is regarded to be among the top cheeses by cheese connoisseurs. The DOP designation states that for a cheese to be called as Pamigiano Reggiano, it has to be produced from cows grazing on fresh grass and hay. Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is named after the provinces in which it is made, namely Provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna and Mantua.

Tasting Notes from the Curator

Real Parmigiano Reggiano has a hard, gritty texture and is fruity and nutty in taste unlike regular Parmesan that has bit of a bitter taste. During maturation, Parmigiano-Reggiano gains its typical granular structure, and when cut it into slivers, it becomes crumbly and soluble. Delicious, easy to digest and with a host of nutritional benefits, Parmigiano-Reggiano always exceeds expectations. The unique taste of a product made without additives, with its concentration of proteins, vitamins, calcium and mineral salts make it perfect for all ages and for all situations, a ready source of useful energy for everyone.


Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is mostly grated over pastas ,most famously used for the Classic Italian Carbonara recipe. It is also used in soups and risottos. Some prefer to eat as is. Pairs well with Pinot Grigio, Pinot Blanc,off-dry Riesling or even Gewurztraminer. All of which offer natural sweetness that can balance out the saltiness of the Parmigiano Reggiano nicely.
