Prosciutto San Daniele 3oz
Made in Friulia-Venezia Giulia, in northeastern Italy by a consortium of 30 producers, Prosciutto di San Daniele is crafted from the legs of hogs raised to 9 months or more. We find that the moister, cooler climate of this diverse food region delivers a cured ham that, even after 13 months of aging, is mild and delicate with a melting and velvety texture. Pair it with slices of cantaloupe or wrap up spears of roasted asparagus. It's especially delicious with the crisp Pinot Grigios of the area.
