Coppa Regale (The Royal Coppa) is so called because it comes from large pigs still bred with methods linked to the rural tradition. These are small farmers who select some pigs during the year and bring them to an exceptional development, around 200-250 kg of weight. When we pick up a few dozen of fresh coppas of these beautiful animals, Le Regali take shape. The considerable weight and consistency of the meat allows us to continue the seasoning up to 8 months, and even beyond that if we have the patience, and to taste the real treasures of Norcina art.
