The Sextner fennel salami Villgrater is produced of pure pork, it is an aromatic house salami with light fennel marks, air-dried after Italian kind.
The Villgrater Sexten butchery is a traditional family business based in Sexten, an idyllic village in South Tyrol. For more than 100 years, the butchery has stood for the highest quality and a close connection to nature and agriculture. The products are made exclusively local raw materials such as pork, beef or game, which come farmers in the region and are kept in a species-appropriate manner. In production, Villgrater relies on artisan traditions and state-of-the-art technology to ensure the highest quality standards. The range includes a wide selection of sausage and ham specialities as well as grilled meat and cheese. All products impress with their natural taste and special quality. With the Villgrater Sexten butcher's shop, you are relying on genuine South Tyrolean craftsmanship and the highest level of enjoyment.
During the hot season, which did not allow for air curing, in earlier times people began to cook the meat first and then lightly smoke it. This resulted in a good shelf life and a food product with an extraordinary taste and aroma.
It is produced using white grape Must, acetified and aged in oak barrels to get its typical amber colour. Its most striking feature is that it does not alter the colour of dishes but it adds a fruity and mildly acid aroma and flavour (excellent to replace wine vinegar).
A little milder spicy than the "Kaminwurze", epicures estimate above all the slightly sweetish taste.
The belly bacon is suited very well as an ingredient of the known South Tyrolean bacon dumplings.
