Product Description

Akin to Prosciutto, this esteemed Salami traces its birth to Parma, Italy. As it cures, the boneless culatello is dried, giving it an almost oblate, pear shape and a sweet porky flavor emanating from a velvety pink-colored meat. Culatello has a delicious taste and splendid one-of-a-kind texture. In the end, it all comes down to preference; Prosciutto vs Culatello. However, many Italians love both, and their choice simply depends on how they are feeling or what they are craving that particular day.

Culatello is often enjoyed alongside fruits and cheeses. It makes a great addition to any cheese plate or sandwich.

Product Reviews

  1. Ham with a very distinctive flavor

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Jan 2018

    1. This ham has a strong wine aroma and very distinctive flavor thanks to the long aging process during which mold spores will penetrate meet, release enzyme and break down proteins into amino acid (much like the process of making salumi). If you like the strong flavor of aged hams then this is the right ham for you.
    2. Texture wise, it is a bit more "chewy" than other famous ham types such as jamon iberico and Jamón de Parma. If you like softer hams that melt in your mouth then please take a sampler of culatello at local specialty stores first to see if you like its texture. Keep in mind that culatello is very lean so it may taste a bit dry for you. (That's why I suggest taking a sample first before investing $80+ for this ham). For me, I like its texture.
    3. Do remove the thin layer of wrapping (bladder) before enjoying the ham.
    In all, this is a good ham. I would recommend it to my friends. I gave it 4 stars only because wine smell is too strong and overwhelms its meat flavor a bit.
