The inimitable fragrance of cotechino sausage, with its decisive and spicy notes, introduces rich flavors and a gratifying consistency.

The origins of the cotechino are vague, but we could consider it the ancestor of all deli meats, it was solely prepared by the "lardaroli" and the "salsicciari" (sausage makers) in ancient times. The first mention regarding cotechino is made in a ceiling price only in 1745, and the first recipe appears the following year. This deli meat is enhanced and ennobled

Italian pork meat, pork skin, water, sea salt, spices, sodium ascorbate, seasoning (olive oil, clove extract), sugar, sodium nitrite. Only natural flavor and spices.

Cotechino is served in its classic form with the puree and stewed lentils and - like Zampone - is a typical dish of the first day of the year. Some famous chefs serve it with a non-sweet eggnog, whipping the egg yolks with cognac. According to the tradition of Mantua and Cremona it is served with spicy fruit compotes. An alternative proposal is to prepare it in a crust of bread wrapped in cabbage leaves previously blanched and baked.

The sharp, slightly piquant flavor requires a wine with good acidity, sharp, a bit rough, austere, gruff, full-bodied, for this reason Refosco and Nebbiolo are both perfect. The softness, the sumptuousness and the good flavor of the cotechino will be perfectly balanced by the character of these two wonderful wines.
