5 Year Cravero Parmigiano Reggiano

Quick Overview:

Extra-aged special 2016 vintage of the our favorite Parm.  The King of kings! 

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Italy
Milk Type/Treatment: Raw Cow
Rennet Type: Animal

The Flavor Experience

Aged by fifth generation affineur Giorgio Cravero, this parm is sourced from higher up in the mountains so that it may retain more moisture throughout the aging process. The result is a lush, buttery mouthfeel and a depth of flavor that is unmatched by export quality parm.

The Story

Generations of Craveros have toiled to make Cravero Parmigiano what it is today. Cravero is aged for an unspecified amount of time but no less that two years. Giorgio releases his wheels for sale when (in his own words) "they are ready." How does Giorgio know when they are ready? The wheels 'speak to him' as they are largely aged until they emit the proper tone when struck with a small specialized hammer. The family has aged their cheese this way for over 100 years.

Usage Tips

Add any of the following: Prosecco, dried apricots, or Aged Balsamic Vinegar.

    The best got better with this one. Cravero makes the very best parmigiano and he just turned it up to 11! Get it while you can.
