A bit of history:

According to legend, Parmigiano Reggiano was created in the course of the Middle Ages in Bibbiano, in the province of Reggio Emilia.

It’s production soon spread to the Parma and Modena areas. Historical documents show that in the 13th and 14th centuries, Parmigiano was already very similar to the cheese produced today, which suggests its origins can be traced to far earlier periods. Mezzano name identifies the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, that shows limited or medium sized defects in the mass and/or rind structural texture, which do not affect the typical organoleptic features of the product. Besides the hot iron branded mark, a special mark consisting of parallel lines is stencilled all around the cheese rind.

Parmigiano Reggiano cheese has a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) certificate.

Legally the name refers exclusively to the Parmigiano Reggiano PDO cheese manufactured in a limited area in Northern Italy.

Special seals identify the product as authentic, with the identification number of the dairy, the production month and year, a code identifying the individual wheel and stamps regarding the length of aging.
