Cinta Senese DOP Capocollo is got from the pig's neck (collo).
The meat is compact, intense red, the fat is white or slightly pinkish. The taste is sapid with hints of nut and chestnut and will surprise you for its fragrance and delicacy.
This gourmet ham should be cut into paper thin slices. Serve as appetizer with breadsticks, olives and different cheeses. Capocollo is also very delicious in paninis, on salads and different variety of pizzas. A truly delicious treat!
Preserve cured meats in fridge. You can keep them in food paper. Never use any covered boxes, because cured meats need breathing. After cutting, cover the cut area with food film to avoid drying. Shelf life is 3-4 months.
