Prosciutto Crudo San Daniele

Prosciutto di San Daniele (PDO) is a cured ham recognized by the Italian State as having been produced under the Designation of Origin since 1970 by Law No. 507 and since 1996 by the European Union as a product with the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) because its characteristics are due to the particular geographical environment, which includes natural and human factors.

 

The raw ham is a product of sweet and refined taste, it is light-fat but with strong flavour. The only additive is the salt that, with the natural aging process, makes the slice compact and red coloured.

Our pigs have a great homogeneity, thank to the farmers loyalty, who feed the animals with a precise diet and made them live healthy. Thank to this characteristic all the thighs reach the same fat level, that allows us to dose salt in the right scientific quantities. This is a fundamental process to obtain not too much salty but sweet hams.
