Coppa Piacentina San Carlo (900g Appx)
Each decadent bite of this Salumificio San Carlo Coppa Piacentina DOP is practically bursting with the taste of hundreds of years of Italian culinary tradition! Produced in the city of Piacenza in Italy's northerly Emilia-Romagna region, capocollo - or "coppa," for short - is made from the shoulder of heritage breeds of hogs that are raised on the rich grains, fruits, and vegetables of the region. Coppa has been made in Italian farmhouses for centuries, where it was considered a special delicacy for holidays and celebrations by peasants and nobility alike!
This product from Salumificio San Carlo allows you to get a taste of this rich tradition for yourself; they hand-trim the finest cuts of pork, cure them with a traditional blend of salt and spices, and cure the coppa for weeks until it is perfectly aged. By the end of the process, the coppa's interior is a rich ruby red that's generously marbled with buttery, flavor-enhancing fat. This melt-in-your-mouth meat carries the subtle taste of traditional spices and has undertones of savory nuttiness. Coppa Piacentina has been a DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) product since 1996, so you can feel confident that you are serving only the finest, most authentic product.
