Simply a legend. And like all legends, Parmigiano Reggiano has a history of seamlessly blended truth and myth.
The ageing process is crucial, as this is when Parmigiano changes character and transforms into that unique, universally coveted cheese. The minimum ageing process foresees 12 months but we sell from 18 months to 72 months selections.
At 18 months, Parmigiano exudes youthful aromas with fresh fruit, grass, flower and milk nuances.
At 24 months its aromas intensify and culminate in a perfect balance of sweet and savoury; a more pronounced crumbliness highlights the cheese's characteristic grain.
At 36 months and beyond, this crumbliness is further accentuated, accompanied by spicier flavours, where fresh fruit aromas give way to more intense dried fruit nuances.
At 48 months he amazes for its flavor and for its crumbly and grainy texture. It melts in the mouth; it is tasty, sometimes with aromas reminiscent of dried fruit and a nutty aftertaste, those who taste it can only appreciate it. The paste is straw yellow and compact with numerous tyrosine granules.
At 60 months Its friability is further increased, presenting an amber, grainy and mineralized paste. The taste is strong and very intense, but never spicy (as happens with other very mature cheeses). The typical aromas of younger maturations (milk, yogurt and hay) leave room for much more complex and marked, woody, smoky, spicy and citrus scents.
At 72 months the color is amber, dry, extremely crumbly, with hints of cheese crust, spices, leather, dried fruit, tobacco, medium flavor, in combination with a fortified wine it manages to perfectly restore balance in the mouth.
