Cravero Parmigiano-Reggiano Sampler

Country of Origin: Italy
Region: Emilia-Romagna
Type of Milk: Cow
Cheese Style: Hard
Flavor Profile: Medium-strong

For five generations, the Cravero family has been hand-selecting young wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano from the finest farms of Emilia-Romagna and transporting them to their maturation caves in Bra, a mountain village in central Piedmont.  We first experienced the Cravero family's Parmigiano at the Slow Food Cheese festival in the town of Bra, Italy. 

While each wheel will vary with the season, we find that these cheeses tend have a moist texture and flavors of pineapple, baked bread, and grass. We, of course, love to grate the younger Parmigiano over a bowl of warm pasta, and also enjoy serving a healthy chunk of the older parm with a drizzle of aged balsamic and a few slices of Prosciutto di Parma on the side. 

This sampler will include a half pound piece of each of the two ages of Parmigiano: 2 year old and the 3 year old "Riserva", and a small "grana" knife, styled after the knives we use to cut open our 80lb wheels of parm.
