Giorgio Cravero- Parmigiano Reggiano 2+ Year 1/2 lb
The Cheese - Parmigiano Reggiano is "The King of Cheese" but among kings, there are still legends. These noble wheels come from one dairy located in the mountains of Parma and are aged by the Cravero family. Now headed by Giorgio, the Craveros have been aging cheese since 1855. Of the 353 makers of Reggiano, only 30 are allowed to stamp their cheese with the Prodotto di Montagna seal; this is one of them. This means that the cows are grazing on higher elevation grasses and the cheese is aged for the first year on the mountain before it goes to Giorgio for final maturation. Most of the wheels we get are 28-30+ months old, yet you will find that this parm is incredibly rich and creamy for being almost three years old!
