Prosciutto di Norcia IGP

Prosciutto di Norcia IGP

Prosciutto di Norcia IGP is a luscious ham produced in Norcia and Valnerina in Umbria thanks to the skill of local artinsans and the particular climate condition of the territory.
It is not by chance that the name norcino is used across Italy as sinonymus for fine salumi artisan.

The production technique of Prosciutto di Norcia IGP is a particularly long, at least 2 year, and complicated: right amount of salt seasoning and pepper and left to mature slowly in the light and dry mountain air, that's why it is also named "salted" ham or "from the mountains".

Norcia prosciutto meat is rather consistent in texture, extremely flavoursome and a rich dark-red in colour. In order to fully appreciate its fragrance, prosciutto is served in the traditional way: sliced by hand into almost transparent strips.

It is perfect served with the local unsalted oven-baked bread and accompanied by fig. For a flavorsome pairing try it with a Chianti Riserva DOCG.
