Mortadella has a typical cylindrical shape.
Typical are also the appearance and the colour of the slice as well, a uniform pink due to finely minced meat studded with well-defined white cubes, the so-called “lardelli” (first quality fat).
The scent is unmistakable, slightly spicy, while the taste is full and well balanced, thanks to the presence of the lardelli which sweeten the flavour of the meat.
Italian mortadella has a centuries-old history and is produced using techniques unique in the world. In particular, the Mortadella Bologna is marked by the European PGI mark.
