Up until the post WWII era, the Reggiana was the main breed of cow in the province of Reggio Emilia. A beautiful beast, this unique cow has a striking red coat. During recent times, these red cows were replaced by more typical and productive black and white cows. Sadly, by the late 1980's only a few red cows remained. However, during the last few years, the breed has been reinvigorated and is now being used for the production of small quantities of special Parmigiano Reggiano. Fanticini produces small quantities of "Vacche Rosse" in their family dairy in Villa Sabbione (near Reggio Emilia), using milk from the Raggio Cigarini Farm. This "Red Cow" variety tastes like the Parmigiano Reggiano of yesteryear. The milk of the red cows is characterized by a higher butterfat content and contains more proteins. This combination allows for the production of a cheese that is better suited for a longer period of aging, requiring a minimum of 30 months, compared to the 24 month aging period of most other Parmigiano Reggianos. Its unique nutty, fruity, grassy flavor is richer than most Reggianos and its texture is somehow creamier, even though it is aged for a much longer time. Reserve it for the most special dishes, or eat it like the Italians do - chunked and drizzled with thick, expensive Balsamico.
  • Made from 100% all natural, grass fed, unpasteurized cow's milk.
  • Photo depicts whole 80 lb. form of cheese.

Parmigiano Reggiano Vacche Rosse
Absolutely wonderful. Incredible with some aged balsamic vinegar!

Very good
Nice, strong flavor & shreds well. I'll buy this again!

now they reduce the price...
... but i'd buy it again. delicate, sweet, succulent. tremendous flavor addition to any pasta sauce. i enjoy it both as a grating cheese (sorry italians) and an eating cheese. in fact, when it comes to eating cheese, it's parmigiano reggiano or nothing at all.

Simply a Superior Product!
First encountered when visiting Italy, once you taste the "Red Cow", nothing else compares. Fast, secure delivery and always a value!

As Good As It Gets!
This is the second order of Parmigiano Reggiano Vacche Rosse I have ordered and both have been great. Years ago, an owner of a cheese "factory" (as they are called) in Wisconsin told me most cheese keep well frozen. Upon receipt, I cut the cheese into approximate one-month chunks, refrigerate one and freeze the rest. This procedure does not appear to detract from the quality.

Terrific Parm. You don't need much to accent a dish.

YUMMY!!!
This is THE VERY BEST parm out there. Love the texture and the flavor is to DIE for. It's hard to come by but please keep it as one of your regular items.

Wonderful & Wonderful
I must sing the praises of your selecting this cheese as a selection, I must next say that your service matches the quality of the cheese.

Melts to perfection
This is the star finish on my hand made (freshly milled Durum) pasta. I like to grate it right at the table on each individual serving- and generously I might add. Double wrap it in the refer so it won't dry out. Once you've tried this you can't go back to cheaper Parm. Vacche Rosse reinforces why Parmigiano Reggiano is truly the King of Cheeses.
