Two cold meats, two regions. When you think of Speck, you can’t help but imagine the evocative backdrop of South Tyrol’s alpine landscapes, where the mountain atmosphere is mixed with a Mediterranean climate, creating a unique combination of sun and fresh air, perfect for the ageing of this excellent smoked cold meat.
Bresaola, on the other hand, is synonymous with Valtellina, a valley in the heart of the Alps where the breezy climate and fresh, dry air create the optimal conditions for the ageing of this unique beef cold meat. With Piaceri Italiani, you can taste them both.
Expressing the best craftsmanship of their areas of origin, selecting a top-quality raw ingredient, and combining the support of state-of-the-art technology with high standards of taste. In order to offer you products that are impeccable in every way, we search for production chains with precise characteristics, without making any compromises.
This is the only way we can bring the best of Italian charcuterie to your table, as certified by the Protected Designation of Origin label, a guarantee of authenticity, regional specialty, and safety.
When producing our Speck, we use a unique method that combines the typical prosciutto ageing process adopted by Mediterranean countries, using air and salt, with the process more characteristic of northern and central European countries, where they use salt, spices, and smoke. Thanks to the combination of the two processes, our Piaceri Italiani Speck IGP acquires its unique, incomparable flavour.
Our Bresaola della Valtellina IGP, on the other hand, is made using a process that makes use of innovative modern facilities to reproduce traditional open-air ageing methods and resting phases, guaranteeing consistent quality.
The skilful addition of spices and herbs which are used to massage the meat during the salting process gives our Piaceri Italiani Bresaola its unmistakable flavour.
Our Piaceri Italiani Speck IGP will surprise you with the flavour and scent of the Dolomites. The soft slices of Speck are delicious as they are, but they are also at their best used as a starter or as an ingredient in flavourful first courses. Accompany it with a light red wine, or with beer or apple juice if you want to immerse yourself in South Tyrolean tradition.
Our Piaceri Italiani Bresaola della Valtellina IGP is healthy, lean, and nutritious, low in calories and rich in fibre and protein. Its soft slices, with their delicate, lightly savoury taste, will give you all the freshness and delicious flavour of freshly sliced bresaola. Enjoy it as it is to fully savour the taste, or seasoned with oil, lemon and flakes of parmesan.
