Description Cured shoulder from Grigio del Casentino pig bred in Tuscany in the semi wild
Appearance The shoulder has a half moon shape; when cut, the slice has a ruby red colour with an important marbling
Taste The taste is full, similar to a spanish Paleta but with more Tuscan character thanks to the traditional seasoning. The hints are of nuts and cave
Maturing At least 120 days
Curiosity Shoulders are less "stressed" anatomic parts of the pig which makes them slightly more fat than hams but also more tasteful and complex. The historical challenge is the dimensions, but the "moon" shape grants this charcuterie a better handling for the slicing, making it more similar to a Speck. The important thing is to remember to start to slice on the convex side in order have a perfect balance between fat and lean
Suggestions Suprising in a chatcuterie board, alone with a nice glass of red wine or naturally melted on a warm slice of sourdough bread

Why we chose them
The wild breeding farm Le Selve di Vallolmo is located in the uncontaminated National Park of Casentino forest. We are in the oriental part of Tuscany and this company take care of Grigio del Casentino pigs under the supervision of the founder Claudio Orlandi. It is a tough, but beautiful and passion driven activity, run by the whole Claudio's family. Each member leads a different part of the business, from pigs birth to animal feeding, from breeding to cold cuts production and sales.The farm was born as Large White pigs breeder in the 80. Then starting with new millennium Claudio felt the need to integrate and differentiate more his proposition and started a charcuterie production with high quality meats. Grigio del Casentino pigs arrived a bit later, they are the result of a cross between a classic pig and Moro Romagnolo or Cinta Senese. Those animal are the protagonist of a project which protects them from the risk of extinction. A few local breeders, colleagues of Claudio, are contributing at the safeguard of this maculated pig. The core product of today tasting is the Prosciutto del Casentino, Slow Food Presidium, and then Mortadella, Pancetta and Ruffiana, all rigorously made with Grigio del Casentino meats.
