The Culatta comes from the processing of the same anatomical part of the Culatello, that is the most valuable part of the ham. The difference lies in the fact that it is left with two fingers of fat under its natural rind and with the anchetta, a small shell-shaped bone, which serves to protect the product during its long aging. It is processed and greased like a ham and in the end, after more than a year of curing, it is very sweet and rich in aromas.
