Prosciutto di Parma Whole Leg Aged 16 Months Approx. 16 LBS
The history and region of Prosciutto di Parma production are what set it apart from other Prosciutti in the world. Since Roman times, this geographically protected food has been world renowned for its delicately salty, yet uniquely sweet flavor and buttery texture. Emilia Romagna is one of the differentiating factors that set Prosciutto di Parma apart from all other hams. The rolling hills around Parma create an ideal environment that includes the Apennine Mountains, which offer crisp breezes that flow from the Adriatic Sea and a distinct microclimate that gives Prosciutto di Parma its uniquely sweet flavor. Prosciutto di Parma can only be produced from Italian-born and bred pigs raised according to the highest standards, on which they are monitored, inspected, and traced.
