This very special treat from a hand selected farm, located in the Mountains of Apennine of Italy, that creates some of the finest Parmigiano-Reggiano we've tasted.

For details about ordering and shipping, please scroll down.

This cheese is aged over 36 months and is a very special treat, so place your order now to reserve your half wheel. We sell out of our especially selected wheels of cheese quickly.

Spring Parmigiano-Reggiano:
One way in which Parmigiano-Reggiano differs is the season during which they were started. This is a spring cheese, meaning that it was begun during the spring months. Parmigiano-Reggiano is also made at other times of year, and each of them have their merits.

Spring cheeses are often the most pungent and herbaceous due to the concentration of fresh, spring grasses and young wild herbs and garlic where the cows forage. As compared to, say, milk collected in the winter when the cows are fed a higher concentration of dry hay.

Tasting notes:
Fine quality mountain Parmigiano-Reggiano should have a sweet, fresh flavor with a long, well-rounded finish. There should be no sharpness or powdery dryness, even with the older cheeses. Since it has been aged over 30 months, it will be dryer than the younger cheese, with a more crumbly and grainy texture. There should be some crunchy crystals.

Serving suggestions:
We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do - try chunks of it drizzled with your favorite Balsamic, in Linguine with Prosciutto, Butternut Squash Risotto, or Orange, Beet and Parmigiano-Reggiano Salad. Try slicing it in wide thin strips or chunks to make the flavor of this cheese sing.

Parmigiano-Reggiano rinds are a hidden treasure! Use them in soups like you would meat bones for wonderful added flavor - especially nice for vegetarians. And no worries about wax or chemicals - it's just cheese.

The arrival of a glorious chunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano is a perfect reason to plan a small food gathering of friends. Or buy a quarter wheel for a truly extravagant party!

***SPECIAL ORDERING DETAILS and STORAGE INFO***

Sizing and Additional Pricing Information
Each half wheel weighs approximately 40 pounds, but sizes may vary. We may adjust your price based on the actual size of your piece.

Order Cancellation Policy:
This is a fresh item that we have to special-order in advance. Therefore, we will charge a 22% restocking fee on any order canceled.

Shipping Details:
Shipping is included in the price. If you order other items at the same time, we may ship those separately via your preferred shipping method at our regular shipping charge.

STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS:
Parmigiano-Reggiano will last for months when properly stored. Additionally, the larger the piece of cheese, the lower the cost per pound, and the longer it should last!

* Keep cheese tightly wrapped in a zip-close plastic bag with all the air squeezed out.

* Only grate or slice the cheese as you use it. Re-wrap remaining cheese tightly with wax paper, and return it to the zip-close bag.
* If your piece begins to dry out, wrap it in slightly damp cheesecloth or paper towel, and then wrap it in plastic wrap or put it back in its zip-close bag.
* Store the cheese in the warmest part of the refrigerator.
As soon as it is cut, Parmigiano-Reggiano begins to lose some of its flavor. (That's why you should always grate it yourself, rather than buying pre-grated.) Unlike some retailers who cut entire wheels up at once and put them on display for weeks at a time, we cut the cheese the day before it is shipped to you!
