Sartori's Sarvecchio Parmesan is classic Italian style cheese using high quality Wisconsin cows milk. This full flavored, buttery, nutty, slightly sweet hard cheese has a pleasing crunchy, crystalline texture followed by a creamy finish, reminiscent of an aged Cheddar.
The paste is firm, dry, deep golden with pronounced caramel aromas. You can see the fine white calcium lactate crystals that are the product of long aging. On the tongue, the cheese is waxy and granular, crumbling rather than dissolving. It finishes with fruity caramel sweetness, because aging has produced amino acids that deliver the perception of sweetness.
