Gran Soresina Parmigiano Reggiano PDO is an aged cheese with extraordinary flavour. Its recipe dates back to the Cistercian and Benedictine monks who began processing milk in large cauldrons in the 12th century to obtain a delicious hard cheese. And it has been handed down to the present: only good milk milked and processed by masterful hands in a one-of-a-kind region. Latteria Soresina carefully selects the finest wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano, attentive to ageing according to tradition.
Did you know that Parmigiano Reggiano is produced exclusively in the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia and Modena, in the Bologna area left of the river Reno and in the Mantua area to the right of the river Po? On these farms, cows are fed a controlled diet based on locally produced fodder, in full compliance with the regulations of the Protection Consortium, which forbids the use of silage fodder, fermented feeds and animal-origin meals.
Approximately 550 litres of milk are needed to produce one wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano. The milk from the morning’s milking and that of the previous evening is collected in typical copper cauldrons, where coagulation takes place naturally by adding rennet and whey starter rich in natural milk enzymes. This is how the curd is created, which is then broken up and cooked until it reaches 55° to obtain a dense caseous mass that will become twin wheels. After branding and salting, the production cycle ends and the ageing of Parmigiano Reggiano begins, lasting a minimum of 12 months, the longest of all PDO cheeses.
What makes Gran Soresina Parmigiano Reggiano unique? It has a pleasantly savoury flavour with fruity notes of walnuts and hazelnuts, a crumbly graininess and a soft, supple texture. Try it for yourself!
