Devodier Ham. Historic, natural, from the best Italian meat, with just a pinch of a secret salt blend.
The “Ancient Cellars”, cured in authentic ancient environments, originates from the passion of a family in Parma, involved in the local cured meats industry for generations. Enjoying the vertical tasting box of Devodier ham means enjoying an experience that requires calm, and attention and needs to be remembered.
“Ancient Cellars” Vertical. A creative and always unique mix, a gastronomic experience to discover.
The vertical must be enjoyed from lowest to highest curing time to discover the evolution in taste of one of the most sophisticated and complex aroma profiles of salumi. The natural, delicate, and long curing time of Devodier ham creates unexpected scents, which deepen over time, originating a creative blend which is each time unique.
The Curing. “Ancient Cellars” Secretum.
The red fir wood is unaltered since the building of the historic cellars and accompanies the hams in the curing, controlled one by one to achieve the perfect finish. The long curing time is not a benefit per se but becomes a magical process when the curer understands the potential of the piece and with the utmost care and experience brings it to the right finish, when flavours reach a perfect balance and the product can best express its complete aromatic range in a delicate balance.
Devodier Ham - Cured for at Least 24 Months
Abeti Rossi® is the label identifying the 24-Months Devodier Ham and is named after the fir wood used for the frames in the “Ancient Cellars” where the hams are cured.
Back in the day, the traditional processing of a quality dry-cured ham required using wood frames. These tall frames carved from the healthiest and sturdiest firs accompanied the classic and delicate ham in its long curing, enveloping it with their warm aroma of resin and wood. Today the classic frames have almost disappeared, replaced by cold steel racks, but it is not the case for Devodier “Ancient Cellars”! We wanted to preserve our old and dear red firs , to ensure they preserve our hams under their kind eye, accompany them in the slow, long and silent curing, enriching them with unmistakable and characteristic notes, all the way to your table. A unique curing environment for at least 24 months, the best Italian meat, a skilful handmade production, and the complete absence of preservatives: the secrets of our dry-cured ham. You should close your eyes while tasting and savouring this product, to travel to the “Ancient Cellars” of red firs.
