Parmigiano Reggiano DOP Red Cows over 60 months: aged elegance
Parmigiano Reggiano PDO aged 60 months is exclusively derived from the milk of Reggiana cows, originally bred in the province of Reggio Emilia. This breed’s milk is prized for its enhanced digestibility and higher nutritional content compared to that of the Friesian breed.
The Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Red Cows 60 months, offered by us, boasts a remarkably intense straw yellow paste with golden hues and a crumbly, grainy consistency. Its seasoning and the animals’ diet of herbs and hay exclusively from Reggio Emilia contribute to its intoxicating, persistent aroma—complex and extremely aromatic. The cheese offers a dry, fragrant, very tasty, and full flavor profile, with intense but never spicy character. Nutritionally, Parmigiano Reggiano PDO Red Cows ensures a significantly higher intake of nutrients such as proteins, calcium, phosphorus, and casein compared to classic Parmigiano Reggiano—a true excellence in our selection!
Tips & Pairings for Parmigiano Reggiano DOP Red Cows 60 Months
The Parmigiano Reggiano Vacche Rosse aged 60 months, a niche product with over 5 years of aging, presents a fantastic but distinctly unique taste. We recommend grating it over pasta dishes and soups or pairing it with dried fruit and nuts. When cut into flakes and seasoned with a few drops of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, it pairs exceptionally well with a robust red wine that can stand up to the richness of this exceptional cheese.
