For over 100 years, Malandrone 1477 has been producing Parmigiano - Reggiano Export in the mountains of Pavullo nel Frignano. In the 2000s, Giovanni Minelli began to age its Parmigiano Reggiano going beyond the average aging periods of 18-24 months and reaching the currently period of 120 months (extremely rare) after years of experimenting. He discovered pleasant and intriguing flavours and aromas, previously unknown to him. The different types of aging preserve balanced and intense aromas, never spicy. Today Malandrone 1477 is recognized among the best producers of Parmigiano - Reggiano, proposing unique aged cheeses with rare complexity, intensity, and balance. Parmigiano-Reggiano Export Malandrone 1477 is called cru, made in a small area in the mountains of Frignano over 700 meters above sea level. In this small area, about 6km wide, the company obtains all the fodder from meadows of wild herbs, which transfer intense and particular flavours to their cheese.
