South Tyrolean Speck is such a special treat because it's made according to a centuries-old recipe. It's perfectly smoked so that its aroma is pronounced and spicy yet also mild. This perfect method of smoking is what's responsible for the speck's very special flavor. Several months of ageing intensifies its aroma, making it a mouthwatering treat like no other.
South Tyrol, or Alto Adige, is a province in the northeast of Italy. It includes a part of the Dolomites range, with limestone summits like the Three Peaks of Lavaredo.
South Tyrol is one of the few multi lingual areas in Italy... in this case German, Italian and Ladin.
