THE ORIGINAL CULATELLO
Culatello (or Culatella) is a typical Italian cured meat made from the tenderest part of the ham. It is best appreciated sliced, and is widely used in appetizers with cured meats and cheeses in many Italian restaurants and wine bars. It has a more tender texture than ham, in fact many prefer to enjoy it even cut into chunks. It is not very spicy therefore has a very mild flavor.
We produce it with the same traditional recipes handed down by our ancestors who in Basilicata dried cold cuts inside caves carved into the rock, also used for storing wine.
