Description

Parmigiano Reggiano is a cheese strictly regulated by its PDO (Protected Designation of Origin). PDO regulates the region where Parmigiano Reggiano may be made, as well as what ingredients may go into the cheese (cows milk, salt, and rennet only), what animals who produce the milk may eat, and the size and shape of the wheels. True Parmigiano Reggiano like this one is easy to identify by its stamped rind. Parmigiano Reggiano is made with raw cows milk and aged at least 24 months for intense, complex flavors. It is a hard, dry cheese and has a hard pale-golden rind and a straw-colored interior with a rich, sharp flavor. Other flavor notes include nutty, sweet, grassy, and fruity.

Parmigiana Parmesan
By Frank Zaccaria

We were very pleased with the packaging as well the quick arrival after ordering the cheese on line. The cheese is priced right as we had checked other Co.s prices. Wisconsin Cheese Co. is one of the only Co. that will ship in warm weather. There is a cold pack that is part of the packaging that keeps the cheese at a safe temperature. The most important part of this review is the flavor and texture of this cheese. It is excellent! It takes me back to my time spent in southern Italy. It has that original flavor I remember so well of the local eateries there.

OMGosh!
By Christine Hasbrouck

This cheese is aged, sharp and delicious! Wonderful for any Italian dish!

Excellant dry hard cheese
By Susan White

This cheese has more flavor than other parmesans I've tried. Of course it grates easily...sprinkle on pizzas and casseroles after baking to add more flavor. I was impressed by the size of the block/slice...worth the $.

Just received my order

I just received my order and only sampled the Parmesan cheese with a pasta dinner. Very tasty!
