Originating in a territory with an ideal climate, thanks to the dry Versilia breeze that gently descends from the Apennine Mountains, it is recognizable for its round, trotter-less form, slices pleasantly framed by milky white fat.
It has mildly seasoned aromas and a delicate flavour. As its curing progresses, it acquires curing cellar scents and other complex, intense aromas. At its peak curing of 24 months, it offers a virtuous harmony of olfactory perceptions, with mild, fragrant aromas. On the palate, it resounds with sweet and soft flavours exalting seasoned notes.
Ideal eaten on its own, it can be paired with fruit such as melon, figs, mango or with special types of bread, homemade breadsticks, toasted bread with butter curls.
Excellent with the Reggiano DOC Lambrusco with a typically sparkling spirit, with a bouquet that ranges from fruity to floral; the aromas are found in the mouthfeel, where they harmonise freshness, fragrance and richness.
