Salame Piacentino PDO is prepared exclusively with cuts of lean and pink pancetta from heavy pigs from Emilia-Romagna and Lombardy.
The minced meat with the traditional coarse mill is topped with a mixture of salts and spices and moistened with an infusion of garlic and white wine from our hills: the Monterosso di Castell’Arquato.
Salame Piacentino PDO does not contain gluten or milk derivatives. All ingredients are allergen free and do not come from GMOs.
The dough is stuffed into casings of natural pork gut, which having a slightly oily wall, slows the drying of ground meat.
After the traditional manual binding it is then seasoned for a minimum of 45 days as required by the specification, to obtain a good compactness of the dough and an optimal homogeneity of drying between the inside and the outside of the slice.
Once the skin is removed, it is consumed hand cut, slightly thick. It is excellent with wholemeal bread and piadine.
To properly preserve the salami it is advisable to keep it in a cool place if whole, in a refrigerator protected by a film if cut. If it is particularly seasoned, to facilitate the removal of the skin, it is advisable to wrap it for a few hours in a cloth soaked in water or in white wine. After that he makes a star incision of the skin on the tip and proceeds to completely peel the product, which will also be slightly softened.
If Salame Piacentino PDO is vacuum-packed, we recommend removing it from the refrigerator and leaving it open for at least half an hour before cutting, to enhance its aroma and aroma.
