Parmigiano-Reggiano, Cravero S/O ~80# $/#
Giorgio Cravero’s family has selected and aged Parmigiano Reggiano in Bra, Italy since 1855. Just off the main drag of the town of Bra, home to Slow Food’s biennial Cheese festival, lie the halls of Cravero. Twenty-foot high rooms that hold five thousand wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano. Cravero’s wheels rest on pine and they turn their wheels more frequently than other agers with an aim to make a softer, less cakey texture.
