The aroma is sweet and fruity, the colour sandy yellow with the taste being intense. It is brittle and crumbly with tiny crystals of Calcium lactate found in the cheese itself.
Made in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, Reggiano is a traditional handmade cheese whose recipe and methods of production have barely changed since 12th Century. Even the cows’ diet is controlled to include only fresh grass, hay or alfalfa. The enforcement of these rules adds to the production costs but the result is a cheese whose flavour and quality is guaranteed. The cheese has to have been matured for at least 10 months to be called a true parmesan. The best kind of Parmesan is made between April and November.
