DETAILS

In December 2022 our team went along with the Rocket Wine team to Bologna, welcomed and guided by Jacopo Stigliano, a talented local wine producer and our "tour operator" for three days. Among other amazing places, we went and visited the shop of Caseificio Rosola, and brought some 30 months Parmigiano back with us. Finally, after months of waiting, and thanks to the huge help of Jacopo who took care of all the  communication on site, you can now enjoy it too.

Though it is aged for a minimum of 30months, this parmigiano will surprise by its sweetness and creaminess. Nutty, tangy but very delicate.While you might expect its acidity to be sharp and aggressive like in some aged hard cheeses, it instead rounds out beautifully in a gentle finish.

 


The Bianca Modenese breed

Bianca Modenese - Wikipedia

A bit of history


The earliest evidence of the Bianca Modenese breed dates back to the first half of the 19th century: Along with the Rossa Reggiana breed, rearing of Bianca Modenese cows soon became closely linked to the production of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

Caseificio Rosola is proud to be at the forefront in the endeavor to recover and enhance the Bianca Modenese breed, since allowing it to become extinct would be tantamount to losing a significant part of our culture, our history – and to giving up a raw material of indisputable quality forever.

 

In the recent past


Along with the Slow Food Movement and the Provincial Association of Breeders, the Modena Province Department now promotes an important initiative focused on the protection of animal biodiversity, which closely concerns the Bianca Modenese breed.

The first Parmigiano Reggiano cheese wheel made entirely from the milk of Bianca Modenese cows dates back to April 4, 2005, when it passed all the quality controls with excellent results. In 2006, the Slow Food Movement decided to establish one of its Arks of Taste to protect the breed – and not just one product in particular.

Consortium and Product Specification
Shortly afterwards, the breeders of Bianca Modenese cattle – with Caseificio Rosola in the lead – decided to form a Consortium for the development of the Bianca Modenese cattle breed, the main intention being to create a short supply chain able to guarantee quality and equally fair costs for both producers and consumers.

The Specification states that the cattle must only feed on natural, GMO-free products. Silage, fodder and feedstuffs requiring pH variations for their preservation are not allowed, neither is the unifeed technique. Fortifying the feedstuffs with mineral salts and vitamins can only be done when prescribed by a veterinarian.

CONCERNING THE WINE SECTION :

Understanding Our Wine Quality Process: We carefully select and taste each wine with Rocket Wine to ensure it meets our standards and matches the detailed descriptions on our webshop. However, we recognize that every palate is unique, and sometimes a wine may not align with your expectations.

If you suspect that your wine is corked or doesn't taste as it should, we're here to support you. We kindly ask that you bring the bottle to our, or Rocket Wine location. This allows us to taste the wine and accurately determine the issue, as this is the most effective method to assess these particular concerns.

We value your input and understand that taste can be subjective. While we strive to provide thorough information and taste profiles for each wine, personal preferences may vary. That's why we invite you to bring in any wine you feel is not up to standard. Please note that for a refund or exchange, the bottle should have more than 50cl remaining.

By following this process, we aim to ensure fairness and maintain the high-quality wine experience you expect from us. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this delicate matter.
