Coppa Della Bassa (Pig Neck Cured Meat)
Coppa is the part of the pig's neck, it usually has a size of 3 kg and its optimal aging time is about 7 months.
At the end of the seventeenth century there are already references to Coppa di Parma, as a sausage. At the beginning of the 1700s it was mentioned in travelers' memoirs as a typical local product. We are in the Bassa Parmense area of Parma, where the air in winter is weighed down by fog whereas in summertime it is the sultriness to be the protagonist. A unique area for the production of cured meats.
What makes the Coppa special?
Coppa is one of the most nutritious cured meats, with a firm texture, delicate taste and sweet characteristic aroma. The coppa is quite fatty, rich in sodium and it is red in color with pinkish white parts. It is produced partly like prosciutto crudo and partly like long-cured meats.
