Spicy Ventricina salami is made from coarsely-ground meat cuts and spiced with red hot chilli pepper. The Bisesti cured meat factory, located in Pomezia, only uses pigs which have been reared and slaughtered in Italy.
Ventricina salami is a specialty of the Abruzzo region, but it is also widespread in Molise and Latium. Its name comes from the type of casing used for this cured meat, called ‘ventre’ - belly. Selected meat is coarsely cut, belly fat is added as well as the spice mix - salt, pepper, red hot chilli pepper and other aromas. Each manufacturer has his/her own secret mix!
Ventricina is characterised by a beautiful orange colour, at times bright red due to the presence of chilli. It is scented and tasty, with perfectly-balanced sweet and spicy flavours, which develop over a long aging period.
It is ideal as sandwich filling, to spice up a cold cut platter, or to garnish a gorgonzola pizza!
