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.
An Italian delicacy that dates back to at least the 12th century, prosciutto is cherished for its texture, color, fragrance and taste. Our prosciutto comes from the highest quality fresh hams that are gently massaged with a hint of salt and then placed in our aging rooms for the slow drying process. Our Curing Masters check the prosciutto daily in the traditional Italian manner handed down for hundreds of years. When cured to perfection, the prosciutto is then hand-trimmed by our Master Salumiere.
