The environmental and climatic characteristics of the area are essential for the creation of this product.
From generation to generation, the knowledge about the production and aging of this excellence is refined more and more, coming to create a Protection Consortium for Piacenza cured meats in 1971, which later became Consorzio Salumi Dop Piacentini, following the European DOP certification received. in 1996.
The main and peculiar characteristic of this coppa is certainly the sweet taste and the delicate aroma: this is because, during production, more importance is given to the full and genuine flavor of the salami than to a high use of spices. The slice is compact and bright red.
