Deli meat originating from Codogno and San Colombano al Lambro, in the province of Milan. It used to be produced with pork and beef. Today the recipe uses only pork and it is a salami known all over the world. Its fresh aroma, with hints of nuts and the finely chopped rice grain mixture define its character. The taste is round with a pronounced and lingering delicacy.
The salami Milano is impressive, large, covered with white moulds, the colour of the slice is ruby red, and its aroma is ripe and balanced in spices. On the palate it is mouth-watering and pleasant, tasty with sweetness, capable of releasing autumn notes of walnuts.
Milan salami should be cut thinly in a slicer, only the salami Milano 250g can be cut with a knife and the slices can have a thickness ranging from 3 to 4 mm.
Pairing and Wines
The perfect marriage for Salame Milano can only be with the michetta bread, but a fresh and unusual alternative is matched with a salad of red chicory cut into strips with diced apple and raisins, all seasoned with balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. Also excellent with a milk roll, a light mustard base and a slice of tomato.
Salami Milano can be accompanied with a good Valtellina Superiore GCDO, or with a Valcalepio Rosso boasting an ethereal aroma and a persistent flavour with light hints of black cherry.
