Parmigiano Reggiano

I currently live in Pisa, Italy and my question is about bringing Parmigiano back to the states.

I have a family business I goto in Parma that is willing to pack up the cheese and mail it to me, but there are customs issues on the italian side and the US side.

The cheese is vacuum sealed and marked with the Parmigiano official markings.

What do I need to do to be able to import a wheel of Parmigiano back to the states? Of course it would be in individually sealed 1 kilo packages.

What are the maximum limits at one time in the mail?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
