The first whiff takes you back in time. The mix of spices and cooking of the meat are reminiscent of good times past. The traditional consistency and flavour of minced meat make for a supremely appetizing classic.
Zampone loves stewed legumes, especially lentils, but it is also perfect with mashed potatoes that soften and enrich its texture with its velvety softness. Spinach with Parmigiano Reggiano completes the dish.
There are several red wines that go well with the zampone, but Lambrusco is undoubtedly the most interesting; its freshness perfectly balances the richness of the dish.
