Oro Nero al Tartufo – Gennari
When Paolo Gennari was asked to make a small Parmigiano Reggiano wheel, he replied that according to the regulations, it had to weigh at least 38 kg. But they didn’t believe him and said that he didn’t know how to make it. That was the day the Oro Nero cheese was created. The wheels weigh about 10 kg and let them age for about 6-9 months. Once they have aged, they are fire branded and the rind is painted black. For this version truffles are added.
