How can you tell a true Salame di Varzi DOP? It’s easy: just look for the Romagna brand. In the hills of the Oltrepò Pavese, lovers of good food know where to find the establishment which, for over 40 years, has produced one of the oldest and most delicious Italian salamis: Varzi DOP. The story of this extraordinary salami merges with the pork butchery tradition of the company’s founders, who have passed their secrets down through the generations in order to keep their product simple and faithful to the original recipe. Salumificio Romagnese also produces other traditional cured meat products, including salamella, coppa, pancetta and cotechino. What makes all the company’s products special is strict adherence to a few simple rules: exclusively Italian meat, carefully selected from the best suppliers; few ingredients, but meticulously balanced to give character but also delicacy; attention and care during delicate production phases; and slow, unhurried curing.
