The whole process was something of a feast, in which genuineness, taste and avour achieved remarkable levels of excellence. However, it was in the 15th century, at the time of the Medici, that speci cations were introduced for the entire production process.
Thanks to its avour and aroma, Tuscan prosciutto is inimitable, but the success of this ham lies first and foremost in the perfect climate for the maturing process, thanks to the light winds, from land and sea, that blow across a territory protected from the cold northerly winds by the Apennine Mountains. Its delicate flavour is masterfully enriched with the typical special maquis herbs of Tuscany, comprising lentisk, myrtle and juniper, the secret ingredients of the prosciutto producers.
This simple authenticity of Tuscan products, which the entire world acknowledges us, is true also of our hams.
