Inspired by a recipe from the Calabria region of Italy, we make our Calabrese from whole cuts of hand-trimmed pork and add crushed red pepper and red bell peppers to give this air-dried southern Italian favorite a ruby red color and spicy finish. Varieties slow aged at least 21 days.
Our Finocchiona is seasoned with wild fennel seeds which give it an alluring cool, sweet flavor – an intriguing balance to the mellow texture and aroma of 90-day aged coarse ground fresh pork. We use an imported, natural, double-layered pork casing cut and stitched together to reach gigantic proportions. Not only spectacular in its looks but outstanding in its taste.

Tanara Prosciutto di Parma D.O.P. at any age is produced under strict Italian law which governs the size of the hog leg to be used and what the hogs eat, among other strict considerations. Once the perfect leg has been selected, it undergoes a sea salting stage that last for a few weeks. The actual curing process occurs in humidity and temperature controlled rooms which replicate the fall, winter and spring seasons. An added bonus is the pure breeze from the Apennine mountains that blows into the curing house windows, thus adding an a unique form of air terroir to the ham. The entire process is time-consuming and tedious, but Tanara’s end product always measures up to the highest standards so that it earns the Parma fire-branded crown stamp with honors. The 24-month version sets itself apart with its bold black label.
