Ancient History and Exceptional Quality

Discover Parmigiano Reggiano Vacche Rosse PDO, an exclusive cheese with a history that dates back in time. Known as the oldest Parmigiano Reggiano, its origins trace back to the wisdom of Benedictine monks who, 8 centuries ago, began producing it using milk from the Vacche Rosse Reggiane, a cattle breed mentioned as early as the year 1000.

Consorzio di Protezione e Impegno

Parmigiano Reggiano Vacche Rosse stands out for its exceptional quality, the result of the commitment of a dedicated Consorzio, established to protect this unique breed, which produces less milk compared to others but of superior quality. The Vacche Rosse are raised with special attention to animal welfare, fed exclusively with natural products and certified non-GMO hay, ensuring rich and genuine milk.

A Masterpiece of Flavor and Tradition

The resulting cheese is a masterpiece of flavor and tradition, with a maturation of 40 Months that enhances its characteristics: a granular paste with traces of tyrosine, a straw-yellow color, and an aromatic and intense aroma. The flavor is sweet, delicate, and persistent, a sign of a perfect maturation.

A Bond with the Land and Culture

Parmigiano Reggiano Vacche Rosse PDO is not just a high-quality food product, but represents a true cultural heritage. With its flavor that encapsulates centuries of tradition, this cheese is a testament to an indissoluble bond with the land and culture of Emilia. It is an example of how gastronomic excellence can coexist with respect for nature and history. A culinary experience that connects you with the heart of Italy and its rich heritage.

🍷 Consumption and Pairings

Perfect to enjoy on its own, this cheese pairs magnificently with a variety of dishes and wines. For a classic pairing, try Parmigiano Reggiano Vacche Rosse PDO with robust red wines, such as a Barolo or a Chianti Classico, which enhance its intense and slightly spicy taste. For white wine lovers, a Pinot Grigio or a Prosecco perfectly match the delicate and persistent notes of the cheese. An excellent option is also pairing with Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PDO or with high-quality honey for a sweet-salty contrast. In the kitchen, Parmigiano Reggiano Vacche Rosse PDO transforms simple dishes like fresh pasta, risottos, or sauces into gourmet creations. With its unique taste and unmistakable texture, Parmigiano Reggiano Vacche Rosse PDO is a true treasure of Italian gastronomy, capable of enriching every culinary experience.

🍽️ Organoleptic Characteristics

Appearance: It presents itself with a granular and crumbly paste, a characteristic that intensifies with aging. The color varies from straw yellow to more intense, depending on maturation, with visible tyrosine crystals that testify to a long and natural aging.

Aroma: Rich and enveloping, with notes reminiscent of dried fruit, such as nuts and almonds, and nuances of herbs and hay. With time, the bouquet becomes increasingly complex and inviting.

Taste: Profoundly intense and persistent. Despite the long aging, it maintains a surprising sweetness, balanced by a light spicy aftertaste. The complexity of taste is a dance of flavors including hints of dried fruit, buttery notes, and a touch of umami, making it a universal cheese suitable for various culinary pairings.

❄️ 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.
