Citterio Bresaola

Bresaola is a classic Italian delicacy, broadly popular in Italy and Europe for many years. It originated in the foothills of the Italian Alps centuries ago when it was customary to preserve meat by curing and then hanging it to age in the dry air of the region. For years, it was not widely available in this country until somewhat recently — at least, not this deliciously.

Our quality and authentic flavor are unparalleled! Closely following traditional Italian methods, Citterio produces this premium quality Bresaola at its plant in Pennsylvania’spoon Mountains. This authentic specialty is made by Citterio from meticulously selected, fresh cuts of lean, top rounds of premium quality beef. Delicately seasoned with our own special blend of spices, these cuts are then dry-air aged naturally and slowly for about three months. This results in about a 50% loss from the original trim weight. In turn, this intensifies the traditional taste and ensures the melts-in-your mouth tenderness so characteristic of Bresaola Citterio. It’s 95% le an­—low in fat and cholesterol and very high in protein and flavor.

Sliced very thinly, it has a satiny, rich-colored texture and a complex taste that’s subtly sweet with a tantalizing, slightly fruity “bouquet”.People with dietary concerns can enjoy Bresaola because it is so lean but with such a rich flavor profile. They find that even small amounts of Bresasola Citterio provide plenty of nutritional value along with
outstanding appetite appeal and taste.
