The Characteristics of Parmigiano Reggiano 24 months
Parmigiano Reggiano 24 months falls into the medium maturing range. It begins to have a more crumbly consistency than the lower ripenings, but without losing structure.
The flavour is very balanced between sweetness and savouriness, with notes of aromas ranging from fresh fruit to nuts. We can say that Parmigiano Reggiano acquires its most authentic form (in taste and smell) when it reaches 24 months of maturation.
