Arranged in the rolling hills of the Parma, Reggio Emilia, and Modena provinces in northern Italy lays the true ingredients to make a real Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. This traditional Agriform 5.3 oz. DOP Parmigiano Reggiano is interwoven into Italy’s gastronomy, featuring flavor notes of nutty, salty, caramelly, slightly sweet, spicy, and floral. Straw yellow rinds encase an ivory-colored, sometimes hay colored, paste that’s dry, crackly, crunchy, and has semi-fat suppleness. Milked from native, pasture-grazing cows, this cheese is aged for an entire year to create the distinct nuances of traditional Parmigiano Reggiano to complete any upscale menu.
Dating back to the 12th century, Parmigiano Reggiano is created using the traditional method of only rennet and milk, with the milk containing a singular bacterial activity from microbial flora that is only native to the Parma, Reggio Emilia, and Modena provinces of Italy. This microbial flora is heavily characterized by the specific environmental factors of these regions, which is impossible to produce anywhere else in the world. Agriform uses these influences to create the perfect, traditional Parmigiano Reggiano. Even after production, the Consortium inspectors carefully inspect each cheese wheel by hand and approve the true wheels with Parmigiano Reggiano fire branding on their natural rinds.
