The bond between Montanari & Gruzza and our beloved cheese is so strong it becomes familial. A love lost in time. The milk is produced by cows fed according to strict rules which involves the use of local forages and plant based feed, forbidding all silage forages and animal based feed. The milk is transported to the dairy within two hours from when it was milked; it is used raw, without additives and temperature treatments. 16 litres of milk are required for one kilogram of Parmigiano Reggiano.
Parmigiano-Reggiano is a hard and long matured cheese. It contains only 30% water and 70% nutrients: for this reason it is a cheese rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals.
It does not contain ingredients, additives, flavorings, processing aids, supports for additives and flavorings consisting of or derived from GMOs.
