Italian Prosciutto ham originates in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, the bread basket of Italy. Like its true Italian counterparts, Volpi prosciutto is the product of a long, unhurried drying process lasting a minimum of 210 days. Each ham is carefully inspected and hand-trimmed by a master Salumiere. It is then carefully rubbed and salted to ensure an air-dried, even cure. The result is a soft, sweet flavor.
