Pancetta Piacentina PDO is obtained from the cut of meat that can be assimilated to the “belly” of the pig, that is the softer and more adipose part, which allows to have that richness of fat that distinguishes this tasty cold cut.
With a characteristic cylindrical shape and, when cut, shows a typical alternation of circular layers of bright red and pinkish white. The scent is delicate, but not without pleasant spicy notes from the special dressing combining salt, pepper and cloves. The real Pancetta Piacentina melts in the mouth, thanks to its softness due to the fatty parts, which also determine the delicate, distinctly sweet, particularly appetizing flavor.
The raw material to make this delicious pancetta comes from pigs strictly born and raised in Emilia-Romagna and Lombardy, while the processing area includes only the areas of the province of Piacenza at an altitude below 900m above sea level. Here the climate and the landscape, with its green hills and its woods, are crucial to obtain the typical characteristics that make this salami absolutely delicious and above all not achievable elsewhere.
