Parmigiano Reggiano is the king of Italian cheeses, and this version embodies everything we love about this cheese. It’s nutty and robust, with a savory depth and hint of caramel sweetness. Crafted into massive wheels using time-honored techniques and strict regulations, traditional Parmigiano Reggiano is crumbly, with crunchy tyrosine crystals, notes of roasted cashews, and fruity undertones that speak to strawberry and stone fruit. Savor this staple of Italian cuisine with a drizzle of Da Rosario Truffle Honey and Prosciutto di Parma.

“Some people want flowers in the center of the table. I prefer a chunk of Parmigiano Reggiano and a grater. It may not be the typical snacking cheese, but break off a piece and add a drop of balsamic reduction for an unmistakable combination of sweet and savory.”

  • Murray’s Parmigiano Reggiano is made in accordance with the strict guidelines that govern the making of this cheese.
  • It’s a P.D.O—protected designation of origin—or name-protected cheese, which means its production is highly regulated.
  • It must be made using raw cow’s milk from the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna, and Mantova in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy.
  • Whole milk collected from the morning milking is combined with the previous evening’s skimmed milk to create the wheels.
  • The milk must be processed within a day after collection.
  • The cheese wheels sit in a brine bath for 20 to 25 hours before they are transferred to an aging facility.
  • They will age anywhere from 12 to 30 months.
  • The wheels are inspected carefully at 12 months to ensure they meet the requirements to be sold as Parmigiano Reggiano.
  • Everything from the diameter of the wheel to the thickness of the rind to the color, texture, and flavor of the paste are held to high standards.
  • Wheels are stamped with the number of the farm where they were produced to ensure they are traceable even once they head to market.
  • With a savory depth and notes of toasted nuts and caramel sweetness, Parmigiano Reggiano has been a staple of Italian cuisine since the 1300s.
  • Wheels are so valuable; they are rumored to have been used as currency and are even targets of heists and theft.
When you receive your cheese, unpack the order and refrigerate the items. We recommend using the cheese paper we send most of our products in to store the cheese. The cheese paper helps cover the items and stop them from drying out, while also allowing the cheese to breathe. Since cheese is mold, it's a living thing! If you cut off air circulation to the cheese, you can actually cause it to suffocate and spoil at a faster rate.
