Salame Felino is a particular type of Italian cured pork sausage. Its name comes from the place where it's produced: Felino, a small village located in Italy's centralEmilia-Romagnaregion. The tiny town is surrounded by the green Bazanga valley, which is full of forests where herds of pigs were raised in the ancient past. But there's another reason why Felino is known for its salami: at 607 feet above sea level, the hilltop town has a mild and windy climate, conditions that are ideal for naturally curing meat over time. Thanks to this unique microclimate, artisans are able to use less salt to preserve the meat.
Historical records show that Salame Felino dates back to the first century A.D., making it one of the most ancient cured meats known to man.
How is Salame Felino IGP made?
Like many other authentic products of Italy, true Salame Felino is guaranteed by its IGP label, which stands forIndicazione Georgrafica Protetta(Protected Geographical Indication). The blue and yellow stamp is a trademark aimed at safeguarding a food product whose quality, reputation, or other featured depend on a specific geographical area. In other words: the IGP label tells consumers that a particular product has been produced, transformed, and processed in a specific region in a specific way.

To make authentic Salame Felino IGP, Rovagnati's sausage artisans begin with a careful selection of Italian pork. The meat must come from pigs raised in Italy without any added hormones. High-quality cuts, usually deboned pork shoulder and pork belly, are finely ground and seasoned with Salsomaggiore salt, whole black peppercorns, white wine, and garlic, then hand-stuffed into a natural casing. Finally, the salami are hung to dry and slowly aged in cellars anywhere from 30 to 90 days.
What does Salame Felino IGP taste like?
Salame Felino is soft to the touch, with a sweet taste and delicate aroma. It has a ruby-red color and is speckled with opaque white bits of fat. Thanks to its seasoning and slow-aging process, each bite boasts a light peppery flavor, with notes of underbrush and white wine.
How should you serve it?
To get the best flavor out of each bite, Rovagnati recommends slicing Salame Felino in a certain way. Begin with a wood cutting board and a long, thin knife. Cut each piece diagonally, about 1/8-inch thick, to create a long, oblique slice. This ensures that each slice contains just the right amount of peppercorn and speckles of creamy fat. To experience the flavors more fully, serve the salame warm at around 140° F.
While Salame Felino is excellent on its own, it also goes well with rustic Tuscan bread,Parmigiano Reggiano DOP,Lambrusco wine, and Ale-style beers. Serve it as an appetizer, snack, or picnic treat!
How it is cut? Felino Salami must be cut by hand, on a large wooden cutting board with a long sharp knife. Slices must not be perpendicular to the length of salami, but longitudinal, thick as a black-peppercorn, so 3-4 millimetres.
How it is maintained?If the salami is intact you can store it at cellar temperature (10 °-17°). Once opened, you should put it into a refrigerator, wrapped in a canvas or in organic paper.
How it is enjoyed? Felino Salami is tasty with everything: bread plus salami is a classic, however, is excellent also withParmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino flakes, you have to try these of Vacche Brune: a real savory goodness! All gently accompained by great wine:Lambruso or Malvasia.
