It’s no coincidence that “artisan” comes from artigiano – an Italian word that refers to the craft of hand making products, resulting in unique and individual qualities. Anyone can use a simple recipe. But like a master chef or winemaker, Columbus's master salumiere (an expert salame maker) brings the recipes to life using a little art, a little science and lots of passion and love.
Columbus uses 100% hand-trimmed pork from hogs that are raised to strict standards – fed 100% vegetarian diets, never ever given antibiotics or growth hormones and raised to the highest standards in reduced-stress environments. All of thier salumi is Gluten Free, has no MSG and 0% Trans Fats.
Columbus Finocchiona is seasoned with wild fennel seeds which give it an alluring cool, sweet flavor - an intriguing balance to the mellow texture and aroma of 90-day aged coarse ground fresh pork. They use an imported, natural, double-layered pork casing cut and stitched together to reach gigantic proportions. Not only spectacular in its looks but outstanding in its taste.
