Parmigiano Reggiano, the George Clooney of the cheese world. Globally famous, packing a punch, and just gets better and better with age. It has a hard natural rind and a dense, crunchy and hard texture. The fantastic crunch comes from the tyrosine crystals throughout that you find only in matured cheeses. The flavour is nutty, savoury, brothy and full of umami with a definite porcini mushroom vibe in there. And as with all the very best Parmesan, a little exotic fruit kicker (think Pineapple).
This Parmigiano Reggiano is matured for 30 months (only the best wheels will be taken this far), significantly longer than most readily available versions, which brings in new dimensions of complexity of flavour to this classic Italian cheese.
