"We give to the nature the time which it needs to the tyre!"
With the Bresaola we mean an air-dried cattle ham from Italy, from the taste a little milder and more softly than the Swiss "Bündnerfleisch".
The Bresaola is better known to us as stored, raw cattle ham. To reach a well-balanced product, we use the so-called "Weißscherzel" (girello) from the cattle leg. After a brine time of 4 weeks, the bresaola is stored in our natural stone cellars at controlled temperature and air humidity. Besides, we place big value of the natural development of the Potrity (=natural noble mould). The Potrity is the blossom for us and at the same time the sign for the maturity of the product. Of course this mould is removed after concluded ripe process. This happens with brushes in the dry state.
Cutting in fine slices, with thinly planed Parmesan stripes, some balm vinegar and olive oil the Breasaola is an Antipasto which searches his equals.
Also good on a "Brettljause" (Tyrolean plate with typical specialities like speck, smoked sausages, ecc.) the Bresaola should not be missing.
This monastery bitter is made by steeping one-year-old cones and the tips of fresh shoots of dwarf pines (Pinus mugo) in brandy for approx. five months. This imbues the bitter with its typical resinous taste.
