FEATURED ITEM

Argentina is home to endless miles of grazing pastures, and the cows that feed on them produce 5,100 million liters of milk per year.

During its 50 years of independence, Argentina became a new home to many Italian farmers, who migrated in order to earn extra money for their families during the off-season. Some chose to stay, but missed their precious Parmigiano Reggiano and began making it locally using traditional methods.

Reggianito means little Reggiano because the wheel has been reduced to 15 lbs. from the enormous 80 lb. drum the Italians produce. The Argentinian wheels are smaller because it was too difficult for oxen to move enormous wheels great distances. Reggianito is cured longer than any other South American hard cheese, resulting in a rich, bountiful flavor. This cheese is slightly saltier than its namesake, but the white crystals in the cheese are not salt grains; they are crystallized free amino acids, which give the cheese its lovely grainy texture. Reggianito is perfect for cooking or grating over pasta. If you like Parmigiano Reggiano, be sure to try the Argentinian version.

  • Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
  • Photo depicts whole 15 lb. form of cheese.
  • We cut and wrap this item by the 1/2 pound.
  • Please contact us if you would like to purchase the whole form.

Great buy!
Almost as good as Parmigiano Reggiano but at a price that makes it an everyday treat!

Great grating!
Always use this cheese grated on top of pasta. Would probably use the real thing for a cheese event, but at the price, this can't be beat.

Delicious!
I can't find this cheese in the grocery stores near my house. It is delicious with a great nutty flavor and just enough bite. I shred into thicker pieces for salads, small shred for Italian dishes like spaghetti & meatballs.

I would not buy again
I love parmesan cheese but this one didn't measure up. I have bought numerous parmesan cheeses from igourmet in the past and they have all been wonderful. The flavor is way too light and it has a strange aftertaste

Perplexed
Don't want to sound like I have a chip on my shoulder as I prefer many lower priced alternatives to the top shelf version. I know this is a great price but as far as being even good or fair cheese it is decidedly not. I know there are a lot of Italians in Argentina, but if they eat this stuff they are either on the proverbial tight, tight budget or smoke 2-3 packs of cigarettes a day and cannot tell the difference. I have to say this is the absolute worse imitation of The King of Cheeses and I would prefer the fake, nutty counterfeit from Wisconsin over this overly creamy, hardly aged, cheddar like consistency of this as a grating cheese. As an Italian I can only have nightmares about paring it with balsamic.

bad cheesw
New to this cheese I was surprised to find it so strong. Surprise it was rotten! It came packed but ice packs were melted and it was warm. My firm grainy cheese Stank like month old goat cheese. Clearly rotted. Never again

Great Italian Cheese

A Magnificent Cheese
There is no reason to pay so much more for PR from Italy. Reggianito is lower-priced, but it has a cleaner, more vibrant flavor. It stands up to any Sicilian/Neapolitan sauce I throw at it. You can also slice it as a snacking cheese -- just try to do that with PR! I think that, as it is made in smaller wheels, it is easier for the affineur to get the desired result, unlike having to deal with an 80-pound of PR. Just a superior product, all around

One of the tastiest grating cheeses!
Delightful, tasty, excellent over salads, pasta, wherever you'd enjoy a good, tasty grating cheese. Wife loves it. Will reorder.
