Spianata Romana

The Art of Tasting


The remarkable seasoning of this product blends sweet and spicy in a sea-saw of captivating aromas.

How to eat it

The blend of the meaty mixture provokes a multi-sensorial effect on the palate produced by the variety of flavors: the sweetness of the meat, the luxuriousness of the fatty components, the spiciness of the pepper and the tang of chilli. Best enjoyed with a simple morsel of bread or, in general, with non-aggressive flavors so as to avoid contrasting the character and completeness of this outstanding cured-meat.

Accompanying wines

There is no need to leave the region for a good accompaniment. Perhaps a young (but not too young) Malvasia (from the Roman hills) whose delicate oxidizing notes will help absorb the impact of the chilli. Obviously a Frascati is perfect too: fresh and floral with that aromatic touch, so perfect for this type of cured meat. And not forgetting that even a light beer, such as bottom-fermented lager with its parchedness and clear citrus hint, can act as a perfect accompaniment for a snack of spianata and durum wheat flour bread.
