NEW to Australia – Prosciutto Toscano DOP
Tuscany has always been very famous for cured meats. The ancient experience of local manufacturers in pig farming, the respect for their ancient traditions and the particular features of the Tuscan Terrain make it possible to produce high quality products such as Prosciutto Toscano DOP.
Aged for at least 24 Months, it has a moist supple texture, is slightly more drier and saltier than Parma and San Daniele Prosciutto but melts on the tongue and has a balanced, sweet-savoury flavour. Serve on antipasto platters, in panini, on pizza, in salads or simply wrapped around Mario Fongo Grissini or Figs for a quick appetizer.
