Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Red Cows: A Treasure of Italian Tradition

Discover Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Red Cows, 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 Red Cows 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 Red Cows.

Quality and Differentiation

Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Red Cows 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 Red Cows 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 Red Cows 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.

🍷 Consumption and Pairings

Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Red Cows is an extraordinarily versatile cheese, ideal for enriching a wide range of dishes and creating tasty pairings.
