The Hungarian Salami Villani is prepared with meats of pure national swine, the thinnest grinding, and with paprika addition. The exclusive characteristics of this salami are the smoking method, made full-scale with beech wood, and its aromatizations obtained with infusions prepared with juniper, cloves and canine rose. It comes seasoned a long time, for further 100 days, and is characterised for the amber colour of its surface after peeling it.
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 prominent mineral vein lends a lasting freshness to the almost oily body that is scented with roses, magnolias, and lychees.
An unusual white wine, considered one of the best and most distinguished in the world, which has found a second home in Oltradige. Crystal-Clear, with a yellow-green colour, it is characterised by intense fragrant aromas reminiscent of fresh peaches. With its elegant and dry flavour, its find and captivating acidity combined with its lively, full-bodied quality are very tempting. A wine simply for pleasure, as an aperitif and as an accompaniment to a whole variety of fish dishes.
