- Gluten free
- Lactose free
This salami called Cacciatorino di Varzi PDO is made from pigs born and reared in the regions of Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna, as product specifications indicate. It is a small artisan salami, born out of the traditions carried on by the Thogan Porri cured meat factory.
This little salami is filled in natural casings and tied by hand. Only the most refined meat cuts are used, taken from pigs weighing minimum 60 kg and which are at least nine months old at slaughtering. In this cold cut the fat percentage, given by the pork jowl and belly, never exceeds 30% of the total mixture which also includes pork leg, loin, tenderloin, shoulder and neck.
The Thogan Porri family skilfully prepares the meat cuts for the mixture, as well as the salting mix, which has been passed down in the family for generations. The end result is perfectly balanced flavours with sweet and enveloping notes.
