The typical flavour profile of Speck Alto Adige P.G.I. should first and foremost be attributed to its South Tyrolean roots. This is a place where Alpine and Mediterranean cultures meld in a unique way and it is the only place where nature provides such an extraordinary climate, boasting lots of sunshine and pure air. South Tyrol may be a tiny part of the world, but it delivers amazing delights and more than 300 days of sunshine a year. This northernmost province of Italy combines Mediterranean weather with Alpine landscapes and a rustic, laid-back way of life. Against the breath taking, beautiful backdrop of the mountains, the people of South Tyrol have been producing their typical ham for centuries and they still celebrate the true speck culture.
