The "Cinta Senese" Ham DOP

Prosciutto Crudo di Cinta Senese DOP is produced in the province of Siena from the meat of the homonymous breed raised in the semi-wild state.
The skilful processing and salting respects not only the strict indications of the disciplinary but also the millenary Tuscan tradition.
After being “massaged” with a mixture of pepper, vinegar and garlic and covered with salt, the ham is seasoned with black pepper for 24 months. Once sliced, Prosciutto Crudo di Cinta Senese PDO shows a firm and brown-red meat, with evident marbling.
The savory and decisive flavor reveals sweet notes of hazelnut and chestnut. It surprises especially with a slightly aromatic finish that brings with it an elegant fragrant vein.
The Cinta Senese is one of the six autochthonous pig breeds recognised by the Ministero delle Politiche Agricole Alimentari e Forestali, the Italian ministry of agriculture and forestry.


The curing of the Cinta Senese PDO ham is carried out in appropriate rooms specially equipped to allow adequate air exchange at a controlled temperature for a period of time ranging from 18 to 24 months depending on the size of the product.

Processing techniques

The fresh thigh from "Cinta Senese DOP", skilfully trimmed, is massaged by expert hands and covered with the right amount of salt per piece combined with natural flavors according to an ancient recipe of the Tognetti family. The hams, placed on wooden boards, are left to rest to reach the right degree of salting and, after subsequent manipulations, the legs are hung in special cells that allow the product to dry gradually and progressively.

The muscle part not covered by skin is covered with lard, a mixture consisting mainly of pork fat; around 6 months, the ham is transferred to the factory's curing cells, where the particular environmental characteristics contribute to the appearance of the characteristic scent and flavor of the “cinta senese DOP” ham.
Prosciutto di cinta senese dop is the ham par excellence of Tuscany, a pride is a tradition of high Tuscan charcuterie, the scent of this raw ham you recognize from a distance, and when I cut it with a knife I feel the flavors and aromas even before you can savor the first slice, with that pink and fragrant fat that goes well with the flavor of the meat making me intoxicated by the genuine taste of this Tuscan specialty.
