San Daniele ham is instantly recognisable due to its special, incomparable taste, which is the result of production phases and maturing processes that are utterly unique and ensure constant softness, taste and fragrance, guaranteed by the "Consorzio del Prosciutto di San Daniele” [San Daniele Ham Consortium] trademark.
Selection of the raw materials and the subsequent maturing process in large, well-ventilated premises, where San Daniele’s famous “microclimate” is undeniably immediately apparent, ensure that the product undergoes the perfect transformation process, achieving the right protein content, delicacy of taste and a superior nutritional content, without the help of any additives except sea salt.
Strict checks and continuous inspections made according to tradition, using a needle made from horse bone, are carried out personally by the owner, Mr. Bassi. In fact it is due to him that the “Prosciuttificio Picaron" is currently ranked amongst the leading companies for the production of San Daniele D.O.P. products.
