Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Vacche Rosse: A Treasure of Italian Tradition

Discover Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Vacche Rosse, an exceptional cheese that encapsulates centuries of tradition and authentic flavor. Produced exclusively with the milk of Red Reggiana Cows, this Parmigiano Reggiano is not just a cheese, but a journey into Italian gastronomic history.

The Red Reggiana Cows

Known as the true "mothers" of Parmigiano Reggiano, the Vacche Rosse were the main source of milk for this cheese until the 19th century. However, due to their lower milk production compared to other breeds, the breeding of these precious cows had almost disappeared. Thanks to the dedication of some breeders and the birth of the Consorzio Vacche Rosse, this breed has been safeguarded, allowing the world to rediscover the unique taste of Parmigiano Reggiano Vacche Rosse.

Quality and Differentiation

Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Vacche Rosse stands out for its unique characteristics that make it more digestible and distinctive compared to traditional Parmigiano Reggiano. Its production follows a strict regulation: the Vacche Rosse are fed exclusively with natural products, such as hay, herbs, and certified non-GMO feeds. This approach ensures maximum animal welfare, with cows living over 10 years, a notable age for modern breeding standards.

Unique Characteristics

Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Vacche Rosse is distinguished by its straw-yellow color, its elastic grain, and an intense yet delicate aroma. Despite the long aging, it maintains a sweet, delicate, and persistent flavor, making it a product of excellence in Italian gastronomy.

Why Choose It

By purchasing Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Vacche Rosse, you not only have the opportunity to taste a superior quality cheese, but also contribute to preserving a unique cultural and gastronomic heritage. It is ideal for enriching your dishes, or as a protagonist in a cheese platter of excellence.

🍷 Consumption and Pairings

Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Vacche Rosse is an extraordinarily versatile cheese, ideal for enriching a wide range of dishes and creating tasty pairings. Perfect with acacia honey and fruit jams, it creates a delicious sweet-salty contrast. Pairing with walnuts and pears offers a unique experience of flavors and textures. In terms of wines, it pairs beautifully with Lambrusco di Sorbara, Malvasia Dolce, Chardonnay, or Sauvignon Blanc, balancing its aromatic richness.

In the kitchen, Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Vacche Rosse is exceptional for creaming risottos. For a memorable appetizer or starter, include it on a platter with Salame di Felino PGI or Prosciutto di Parma PDO. Remember to leave it at room temperature before consumption to enhance its flavor and aroma.

🍽️ Organoleptic Characteristics

Aroma: This cheese emits a rich and complex aroma, which fully develops during the aging process. Notes of dried fruit, aromatic herbs, and a light hint of butter come together to create an inviting and unique olfactory bouquet.

Taste: On the palate, it offers a sweet and delicate flavor, despite the long maturation. Flavors of fresh and dried fruit emerge, with a perfect balance of saltiness. Its taste persistence is remarkable, leaving a pleasant and lasting aftertaste.

❄️ Preservation

To preserve the freshness and organoleptic qualities of Parmigiano Reggiano, it is essential to follow correct storage practices. After purchase or opening the vacuum packaging, it is important to store it in the refrigerator, maintaining a temperature between 4 and 8 °C. To avoid absorbing odors, keep it separate from other foods and store it in glass or plastic containers, or wrapped in transparent food-grade film. It is important NOT TO FREEZE THE CHEESE and to periodically check the storage conditions.
