Columbus Finocchiona Salame
As old Italian folklore goes, a thief walking through a fair in Prato, Tuscany stole a stick of salame from a merchant and hid it in a field of wild fennel. When he returned, it had absorbed the distinct sweet flavor and aroma of the fennel and Finocchiona was born. Columbus® Finocchiona Salami is made with whole cuts of pork never treated with antibiotics, fresh garlic, sherry wine and wild fennel seeds that add a mellow aroma and taste. Slow aged for up to 90 days depending on size.
