Volpi® Culatello is a specialized form of Prosciutto and is known as the ‘King of Salumi’ in Italy. This pear-shaped Prosciutto is made by cutting the top cushion of the ham leg, spicing the meat with only coarse sea salt, encasing the meat in a natural casing and hand-tying each piece to create the signature petaled look when sliced. Each piece of Culatello is hand-tied and air-dried for up to 8 months to develop its signature delicate flavor. Volpi® Culatello is perfectly aged for a maximum of 8 months in order to develop full flavor without sacrificing the soft texture of the pork.
