Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is named after the provinces in which it is made, namely Provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna and Mantua. True Parmesan cheese has a hard, gritty texture and is fruity and nutty in taste. 24 months matured! The sweet yet persistent flavour of this cheese pairs perfectly with full-bodied wines, as well as ones that are lighter and sparkling. A truly versatile cheese to round out any platter filled with delicious authentic Italian food.
