Considered the “prince” of Italian deli meats.
The Prosciutto Crudo (raw ham) is a seasoned product obtained from selected pork thighs, coming from animals weighing between 160 and 180 kg (the so-called “heavy pigs”).
The shape is elongated, pear-shaped, while the colour inside the ham is rosy, uniform, edged with fat. The scent is fragrant, the taste is delicate, not very salty, tasty and aromatic. Some hams of the Italian tradition have the protection of the European DOP or IGP marks.
