The South Tyrolean farm bacon is a culinary event of the special kind. An exclusivity, only in tiny amounts available, for gourmets oriented to pleasure to whom among other things also is aware of the great importance of an adequate fat portion. The meat comes pigs who are held appropriate to the species on small-structured South Tyrolean farms and are nourished freely of genetic engineering with especially well-chosen feed. The result are the pigs who prove an especially mellow bacon.
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).
Olive oil recommended for: Vegetables (raw, cooked or roasted), grilled vegetables, potato dishes, sauces, soups, pasta and rice dishes, roasts, grilled meat, fish dishes, cheese and sausages, pizza and bruschetta. This olive oil can be used for cooking as well as raw.

The belly bacon is suited very well as an ingredient of the known South Tyrolean bacon dumplings.
