Five 16 oz Pieces Shipped in 5 lb pack.
Salumeria Biellese crafts a Wild Boar Sopressata using techniques based on Italian tradition passed down through their families for generations. This delicacy is made from coarsely ground wild boar trimmed off the shoulder. Natural spices are added sparingly in the European style so as to complement and not overpower the distinctive musky flavor of the wild boar. Wild boar is more flavorful than domestic pork because their diet of roots, grasses, nuts, and berries is transposed into the meat leaving behind a leaner, more piquant, pleasantly spicy meat with a deep red almost exotic color. Wild boar is well-marbled and when coarsely ground with natural herbs and spices and left to age results in a Sopressata bearing a slightly sweet robust flavor.
Wild Boar Sopressata pairs well with fresh figs, dates, walnuts, and pistachios while sipping an Italian Barbaresco red wine. It also pairs brilliantly with a variety of other dishes, including pasta dishes topped with dense, savory tomato sauces and four-cheese gnocchi as well as savory stews. The distinct flavor stands alone on a charcuterie board, alongside a savory rosemary bread or with Pecorino Toscano, Toma & Brá cheeses.
The wild boar is quite a charm for the citizens and visitors of the city of Florence, Italy. Il Porcellino translates to ‘piglet’ from Italian and affectionately refers to the bronze fountain of a boar that sits in the Mercato Nuova. The fountain figure was sculpted and cast by Baroque master Pietro Tacca shortly before 1634 and legend states that if you rub its snout you will return to Florence. Wild Boar Sopressata will have the same effect on your family and friends hoping to return for more.
