Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese- DOP
Aged 24 months Wedge - approx 1.25 lb, hand cut size
Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese, Italy's finest. Loved world-wide as one of the world's great cheeses! Aged 24 months. You'll love it with pasta, salads, sauces, or all by itself. The milk used is unpasteurized, from free-range cows. The milk is left overnight so that the cream can be skimmed off the next day and added with the fresh morning milk, making it a partially skim mixture. The texture of Parmigiano Reggiano is hard and grainy and its flavors are rich, nutty, and sweet with undertones of salt.

Acronyms like DOP show that the product — be it pecorino or prosciutto — is legally guaranteed to be "authentic," or made in the original town or region with real ingredients. (In other words: Parmigiano Reggiano DOP promises that there are no wood chips in "Parmesan cheese" allowed.) For example:
Denominazione d’Origine Protetta | Protected Designation of Origin
The DOP label guarantees that your favorite cheese, prosciutto, olive oil, etc., is produced, processed, and packaged in a specific geographical zone and according to tradition. Each step, from production to packaging, is regulated.
