We only select whole rear legs of heavy pigs born, raised and slaughtered in Emilia Romagna and Lower Lombardy. We control origin, weight and fatness; on the skin, through the marked tattoo, we verify the age and origin of the pig. Skinning, deboning and processing are not outsourced operations but internally hand-made ones by our skilled and experienced butchers every week. We make the difference because the authentic Dallatana Culatello di Zibello PDO is born from an authentic control of the raw material.
Salting with a weight scale
We salt by hand every single Culatello di Zibello PDO: we massage with our hands precise amounts of salt, measured on the scale, individually calibrated one by one on the Culatelli, because each one is strictly salted according to its weight. We make the difference because the authentic Dallatana Culatello di Zibello PDO is not eyeballed but result of a genuine and strict care.
Attending the school of excellence
Curing Culatelli di Zibello PDO imposes respect to the time and obedience to the oldest butchery traditions. But nowadays, in order to ensure consumers’ health and safety and provide a product that may reply to different customer needs, it is also essential to do research and development. Our modern laboratory is at the forefront to perfectly match these two needs: we make the difference because the authentic Dallatana Culatello di Zibello PDO means tradition and innovation. Together.
The Ancient XVII century Cellars
We only choose the best Culatelli di Zibello PDO for their long ageing in our ancient cellars of our XVII Cent. Mill: old oak beams and original terracotta floors welcome cascades of Culatelli di Zibello PDO, where the charm of the ancient and the poetry of tradition become the precious scenery of our Culatelli di Zibello Riserva. We make the difference because the authentic Dallatana Culatello di Zibello Riserva smells of history, tradition and old cellars.
