Prosciutto crudo and Speck

Cortebuona offers an extraordinary selection of Prosciutto Crudo with a wide choice of formats and processes: the "jewels" of the Italian Master Pork-Butchers (“norcini”) most recognized and appreciated in the world thanks to their processing and the long and skilful curing.

Prosciutto di Parma PDO

For the production of Prosciutto di Parma PDO, only legs from the heavy pigs of the Po valley are used, originating from the PDO protected circuit. The fresh leg is left to rest 24 hours in a cold cell, after which it undergoes the trimming and the various salting phases. The ham is stored for different periods of time in cells with different humidity and temperature levels.
It is then washed and hung from the traditional wood frames called "scalere" for the pre-curing phase, then the external surface is greased and prepared for the curing stage in cool and less ventilated cellars, where it slowly reaches maturity. Available sizes: whole with bone, boned or sliced.
