Parmigiano Reggiano Vacche Rosse

Not all Parmigiano Reggiano is created equal. This one is made by a farmhouse dairy in the remote mountains outside of Modena only using the raw, untreated milk of the red cow (Vacche Rosse) – the original breed for the production of Parmigiano Reggiano. It is a rare species nowadays, as only a few farmers have taken the care and attention needed to raise these special cows. This high altitude means less pollution in the soil, and therefore, more flowers, herbs and fresher grasses in the cow’s diet. This is reflected in the rich milk and ultimately, in the cheese. Besides all that, what is more important is that the finished cheese has a rich, wonderfully complex flavor with a finish that will linger in your palate a long time afterward. Please don’t compare this to the pre-packaged Parmigiano in your local grocery store that have a bitterness that mars its final flavor; this one is about a hundred times better.
