Why is Parmigiano Reggiano so good?...
Parmigiano Reggiano is aged longer than ordinary cheeses, and aging is one of the reasons for its rich flavor and granular texture. Parmigiano Reggiano has a sharp, complex fruity/nutty taste with a strong savory flavor and a slightly gritty texture.
King of cheese – Parmigiano-Reggiano has been a tradition in Italy for more than nine centuries. In fact, its popularity and long-standing history have earned it the nickname, "King of Cheese."
How long does Parmigiano Reggiano age for?
For Parmigiano Reggiano, the minimum maturation time is 12 months. Is there a maximum maturation time? No, there isn't. Most of the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese on the market is between 24 and 36 months old, but it can be found with longer maturations, from 40 months to over 100 months.
Where can Reggiano come from?
Parmigiano Reggiano is produced exclusively, and only, in the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, and Bologna to the left of the Reno river, and Mantua to the right of the Po river: this is the area hosting the farms where the cattle are fed on locally grown forage.
BTW... Parmigiano Reggiano should never be frozen!
