  1. Overview

Leonardo Parmigiano Reggiano 12 months old

Fresh sweet-sour subtle taste. Perfect for snacking! P.D.O.


Parmigiano Reggiano is made purely with cow’s milk and is famous for its recognizable cylindrical shape, either with tapered edges or almost perfectly straight.

A wheel of Parmigiano is 35 to 45cm wide, 18 to 23cm tall, and weighs between 22 to 40kg. The rind is hard either dark and oily or golden. The inside of the cheese is slightly grainy and hay-coloured. The 12-month old cheese has a smooth texture and a sweet-sour subtle milky taste of fresh butter and grass with some citrus and pineapple undertones.

Shelf Life

Leonardo's Parmigiano is delivered vacuum packed and will last for months unopened at room temperature. Once open keep it refrigerated in the bag we'll give you with your cheese and eat within 3-4 weeks.

How to use

Take the cheese out of the fridge 30 min in advance and break it into blocks rather than cutting it in slices.

What about Leonardo


The best Parmigiano this side of anywhere!

»I took two weeks of vacation in my life, the ones in which we were renovating the Casearia«. Leonardo is a kind, thin man in his late sixties. His thinning grey hair and fair complexion reveal he does not spend too much time outside in the sun, yet his grey eyes, hidden behind frameless eyeglasses, are lively and warm.
