Vacca Bruna

Di Sola Bruna - aka Brown Cow-Parmigiano Reggiano DOP is known for its rich but delicate taste. The cheese is a straw color, indicative of a traditional diet of different hay varieties and feed. The milk from the Brown Swiss cows has higher protein and casein contents than most other cow's milk. After aging for 24 months, it melts in your mouth and offers a sweeter, nuttier and almost toffee like taste because of the milk from this special breed of cow.
There are only a few producers of this truly exceptional cheese. Ours comes from the only Azienda Agricola that produces 100% milk from Bruna Alpina and transforms it all into Solo di Bruna Parmigiano Reggiano. Our farm does not produce any other variety of Parmigiano.
