Sourced directly from Parma, Italy and grated off the wheel, the truest form of Parmesan cheese is freshly baked into our splendid Wine Snacks. Pair with a luscious red and enjoy the smooth, savory combination nature intended.
Parmesan’s savory flavor provides a nice balance to varietals with high tannins, such as Syrah and Nebbiolo. Notice its nuttiness draws out the nut in Sangiovese as well as the pleasurable undertones of cocoa and vanilla commonly found in Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Pairing this with Pinot Grigio really draws out the parmesan flavor of the Wine Snack. With sparkling wines, the savory flavor of the parmesan will cut any excess acid, while maintaining the delicate flavor notes and effervescence we all love. If you’re a fan of cheese and herb flavor (think Chevre or Caesar Salad), then you will find this especially present alongside a Sauvignon Blanc.
Lastly, with this product you can’t go wrong staying in Italy for wine, eat it with Barolo and Barbaresco (made with Nebbiolo), Barbera or Pinot Grigio
True Parmigiano Reggiano® cheese is made in Parma, Italy and owes its lovely flavor to longer periods of aging (just like wine!). In fact, as the cheese ages it develops flavors of melted butter, fresh fruit, walnuts, hazelnuts and even nutmeg. All of the Parmigiano Reggiano® used in this Tasting Stick is aged at least 12 months!
