Parmigiano Reggiano aged 48 months
Our 48-month Parmigiano Reggiano contains all those precious characteristics that only time can develop. The long aging period gives this cheese a more compact and irregular appearance, together with an intense amber colour. The flavour is more complex and pungent than previous ages, with pleasant spicy notes, of hay and dried fruit and nuts. It is perfect for those who love particular and uncommon tastes, and is excellent as a gift. In the kitchen it is perfect for tasting sessions, perhaps accompanied with well-structured and meditation wines.
- Compact and very crumbly paste.
- On the nose it has more developed hints, such as spices, dried fruit and nuts and hay.
- Strong, decisive and slightly pungent flavour.
- Amber colour.
Try it with a good glass of fresh Lambrusco or intense and full-bodied wines, such as Barolo or Sauternes. It is excellent to simply taste in shavings, maybe accompanied with sweet preserves and balsamic vinegars. Given its noticeable friability it is also excellent grated as a filling for fresh pasta.
