Flavour Profile: Classic and brilliant. Initially sharp, packing fruity and salty flavours then mellowing to a deep buttery finish. This crystalline, grainy textured cheese has a beautifully strong and full aroma.
Drink Pairing: Parmigiano-Reggiano with its mild nutty flavour and fruity taste is a good pairing with Champagne, or Italian sparkling wines like Prosecco!
About the Maker: The Bilzi Family behind the Zabo Brand are cheese maturers. Although they started as cheesemakers, they now concentrate on the careful ageing over years of the cheeses. Every week they visit the farms in the high pastures, selecting the best cheeses for maturing, working only with particular producers who share their artisan approach.
How to Enjoy: Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is best served grated over pastas, or even used in soups and risottos. It is also great eaten on its own as a snack.
