The Giansanti Di Muzio Parmigiano Reggiano DOP is made by traditional techniques and artisanal crafts. For a 40 kilos wheel of our closed cycle parmigiano we use 600 liters of milk. Only the milk of our cattle, fresh from the cows daily milked with passion and care in our stable. The same passion and care with which in our next door factory, every morning, our master cheese maker is crafting 8 wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano according to the ancient dairy tradition, the one of handmade cheese, with an almost total absence of machinery, using typical tools like the spino, an ancient wooden stick to break the curd. We take care of our cheese every day also in the casera, the spectacular aging room, where every Parmigiano wheel rests for a minimum of twelve months up to over 5 years, in the silence and the typical microclimate of the Parma countryside Parma. Every day, 365 days a year, with passion and care.
The Parmigiano Reggiano DOP Giansanti Di Muzio won the World Cheese Award in 2014 in London and the 2016 Alma Caseus Gold Medal.

We suggest you to pull out the Parmigiano from the vacuum bag about 15 minutes before eating it.
If the vacuum bag is intact, Parmigiano can be stored in the refrigerator for about 6 months (see the best before date indicated on package).
Once the package is opened, cheese must be kept in the refrigerator and consumed within a month.
We suggest to put in a airtight container (or wrapped into a food film paper) before putting it back in the fridge.
However, do not store Parmigiano at a temperature above 8 ° C.
Twelve months is the minimum period in which the cheese develops and matures all the nutritional characteristics that make it unique. This cheese is softly-and-round tasting, white in colour, and still partially granular in consistency. For this reason we recommend it first of all as a “table cheese”, to be eaten together with a drink or as an appetizer in family brunches

It is perfect as a table cheese as well as to be grated, if you want to give a dramatic and unmistakable flavour to your dish.
This cheese won the 2014 World Cheese Award Gold Medal in London UK.
