Ham Prosciutto di Parma
Gazzetti’s ham selection comes all from Emilia-Romagna: Modena PDO and Parma DPO ham.
First of all, based on a strict procedural guideline, we control each piece and select the biggest size from 9.5 to 11 kilos. Bigger pieces require a 24 months ageing and generate a sweeter and softer ham, while a small piece generates a drier, salter and more fragrant one. After the selection, each ham is controlled again in the shop laboratory with an olfactory analysis using a needle shaped tool made with horse bone to deep drill the ham and smell its essence. Thereafter, some of the selected hams are deboned and sliced to be sold, some other are sold with their bone.
