La Traversetolese Parmigiano Reggiano – 24 months
This unique Parmigiano Reggiano is produced by Caseificio La Traversetolese in the village of Traversetola, Parma, Italy. This small, wonderfully-skilled dairy has limited production cheese of only 19,000 wheels per year – each wheel is stamped by the town’s symbol, a winged goddess. The cheese has a unique beautiful white interior color, which earned it its nickname “white gold”. Its flavor is more subtle than most Parmigiano cheese – nutty, and significantly less salty than most. This is partly due to the cow’s feed, as they gorge on rich and silky flax seed as part of their diet.
