Prosciutto Crudo 24 Month Aged
Produced in the traditional way, but the choice of the thighs is particular, the meats have a better quality and greater quantities of fat to allow a longer curing period. For three weeks the hams absorb salt in a cell which is damp (80%) and cold (from 1 to 4 degrees), after which they rest for three months, drying slowly. Now all depends on the sea air, which carries the balms from the woods of the Apennines down to the plains. Weather permitting, the windows are opened and for nine months this is the procedure. The hams are then moved down to the cellar, where after two years curing is completed.
