Emilia-Romagna

Culatello di Zibello (D.O.P.), made in Emilia-Romagna in the small town of Zibello, is a unique specialty made with the back of the pig’s haunches. As specified by its D.O.P. label, the pigs used to make this delicacy must be bred and raised only in this particular region, where they are fed fresh grains and cereals, as well as the whey and leftovers from the production of the famous Parmigiano cheese that is made in this area as well. Besides the special care in feeding that these hogs receive, a large reason for the extraordinary outcome of this delicacy is due to the unique climactic conditions in this area on the banks of the Po River: foggy, humid winters alternate with long, hot summers. These regular fluctuations in temperature and humidity favorably affect the aging process. Of course, tremendous care is given to every step in the making of a great culatello: salting, resting, filling of casings, tying and aging.
