Description
 
Only one thing could be better than Parmigiano Reggiano -- Red Cow Parmigiano Reggiano. This is made from the milk of the rare Red Cows -- Vacche Rosse (pronounced VAH-kay ROW-say) -- a historic breed of Italian cattle that were pulled back from the brink of extinction. It is higher in protein and butterfat and is aged longer than regular Parmigiano Reggiano. The Red Cow produces a third less of milk than the other breed, but it has a higher performance in the chesse-making process. In Red Cows milk there is a variation of the casein, the essential protein in the process of transforming the milk in cheese, that guarantees a better aptitude for the cheese to a long ageing, with a consequent better digestibility. For that reason the production regulations of Red Cows Parmigiano-Reggiano provide that the product can be sold only after at least 24 months of ageing, compared to the 12 months of the traditional Parmigiano-Reggiano. The result is a cheese that, despite the long ageing, has a sweet, delicate and persistent taste. Moreover, also the organoleptic features are different. Characteristic is the straw yellow colour, the elasticity of the grain, the strong but delicate aroma even after 30 months of ageing.This would be an extraordinary finish to a meal or on a cheese plate with a bit of aged balsamic vinegar drizzled on top.

5 of 5 WOW! What a FLAVOR(S)!! November 27, 2018
Reviewer: Bruce from Glengary  
This cheese is a real taste explosion.  The ad copy says it has to be 24 months, I got a pound that was 5 years old!  Incredible crystals and textures, it's worth more than the price of admission.
