A-Grade Parmigianno Reggiano


Place of Origin  Emilia-Romagna, Italy
Milk Type Partially Skimmed Cow's Milk
Style Hard Cheese
Wine Pairing One of the few cheeses that can hold it's own against a big and bold red, so we like to seize the opportunity. We love a punchy Italian Amarone or Chianti, or a fruit driven Australian Shiraz like Elderton's Command or Penfold's Bin 389. 
Tasting Notes Parmigianno Reggiano is not just a staple food, but easily one of the most loved and widely traded cheeses there is. A truly ancient cheese; authentic DOP versions are still made today using the very same method that existed when we still thought the earth was flat. An A-grade parmesan is intensely dry and dense, yet somehow retains a hint of the creamy goodness in the milk. The texture is granular and blissfully crunchy. Those white specks often mistaken for salt are actually clusters of amino acids that crystallise with age. The flavour is all at once salty, spicy and sweet with an explosive burnt caramel finish. A cheese so remarkable it could move me to tears. You don't need anything but a knife to enjoy this cheese, but you can improve pretty much anything else you eat by adding a few shavings.
