Tightly wrap your wedge of Parmigiano in foil and store it in a dry section of your refrigerator's vegetable crisper. It will keep its best flavor for about a month. If the cheese dries out during storage, wrap it in a moist paper towel and then in foil for a day before rewrapping just in foil. Freezing isn't recommended.
