Prosciutto Toscano DOP is a raw and cured ham obtained through the processing of fresh pork legs that is produced in several communities throughout the region of Tuscany.
Prosciutto Toscano DOP has a rounded shape; it is curved at the top and weighs roughly 8 or 9 kg. When sliced, it has a vivid red colour, with a very small amount of fat. As for its taste, it is delicate with the characteristic flavour of sea salt, natural spices and pork fat obtained from the curing process.
Prosciutto Toscano can be enjoyed on its own when cut in slivers and accompanied with some bread, or combined with some vegetables and oil. Due to the prosciutto’s delicate taste, it requires a full-bodied red wine, such as the Tuscan Chianti DOCG.
