Coppa Stagionata is made in Italy.
Originating in the northern regions of Italy, Coppa Stagionata is crafted from the neck muscle of the pork, a cut renowned for its delicate marbling and exceptional flavour. The meat is then seasoned with aromatic spices, including juniper berries, nutmeg, and black peppercorns, and encased in natural or synthetic casings.
Traditionally, Coppa Stagionata undergoes a slow salting and drying process that can last for several months, depending on the size and desired flavour profile of the meat. This aging process allows the flavours to meld and develop, resulting in a sophisticated and complex flavour profile.
Coppa Stagionata boasts a deep red color with delicate white streaks of marbled fat. Its texture is firm yet yielding, with a characteristic melt-in-your-mouth sensation. The flavour is rich, savoury, and slightly salty, with hints of spice and sweetness.
