Reggianito refers to a hard cheese that originated from Argentina. It is made from cow's milk which are pasture fed.
Reggianito translates to little Reggiano, so called because instead of a massive 80 lb. drum, the Reggianito cheese is produced in 15 lb wheels. Reggianito is cured longer than any other South American hard cheese which enhances its flavor. This cheese tastes a little saltier than Reggiano. Reggianito has an excellent taste and is perfect for cooking or a topping on pasta, it is a good alternative to traditional Italian Parmigiono-Reggiano that is mostly used for grating.
