The hams are only obtained from first-class pork legs from pigs raised in Tuscany and the surrounding regions. The crown of the ham is rubbed with sea salt, garlic, Tellicherry black pepper and wild juniper berries which creates an intense taste and a slightly spicy flavor. The crown is also larger than other hams, which allows for an easier diffusion of salt and spices. For 14 months the hams are cured, this unique process mimics the climate change of the four seasons. These techniques have been used since the 15th century by the De Medici family
