FIOCCO DI PROSCIUTTO

 

  New     SPECIAL OFFERS

 

Fiocco di prosciutto comes from the pork thigh used to produce the famous Culatello di Zibello.

The pork comes from Italian farms of the controlled supply chain for the production of Prosciutto DOP.

Culatello comes from one side, and from the other side comes the Fiocco di Rifilato, which is massaged and salted, then tied and aged in the same humid cellars where the Culatello is aged.

Upon slicing, the Fiocco is ruby red with very little fat, and is protected by the rind of the “lard” like prosciutto.

Of an intense aroma, a sweet, delicate taste, by tradition it is to be eaten on special occasions.
