Cinta Senese Dop ham
Prosciutto Crudo di Cinta Senese PDO 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 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.

General description of the product
The origins of this breed are very ancient and there are pictorial evidence that demonstrate the breeding of pigs similar to the current Cinta Senese since the Middle Ages. The most characteristic feature of this pig is the presence of a white belt, which gives the breed its name, on a coat that is black-slate in color. At risk of extinction in the immediate post-war period because it is less "heavy" than other pigs and due to the objective difficulties of breeding in the wild, it is today sent back to the passionate work of some farmers. The ham is recognized by its long and fine leg, the meat is firm and brown-red in color, the fat is ivory white or slightly pink. After a skilful processing and salting, it is aged for a period ranging from 15 to 20 months. The savory and decisive flavor surprises even the most refined palates for all its fragrance and elegance that give this ham a strong personality
