THE DIFFERENCE FROM OTHERS

#1

THE CLIMATE. Colonnata, located 550 meters above sea level and nestled between marble quarries and chestnut woods, is characterized by an ideal microclimate for the long maturation of the product (minimum six months, but also two years or more) which takes place in marble tanks (basins) at natural temperature (without forced conditioning). Mainly for this reason only the lard processed in Colonnata is the true and only Colonnata lard.

LA NOSTRA AZIENDA

#2

MARBLE. Letting the lard mature in its living walls, which breathe, without exuding or absorbing, or using inert containers, made of steel, wood or, worse, plastic, is certainly not the same thing. Furthermore, not all marble is the same: you need to know how to choose the right one, that is, the fine-grained one in the Canaloni di Colonnata basin.

#3

SEASONAL PROCESSING (from September to May) and the use of local aromatic herbs and spices (no type of additive, preservative, flavoring is used). The summer months are characterized by higher temperatures and greater thermal fluctuations. Limiting the processing of lard to the cooler months helps reduce the risks of microbiological contamination and guarantees the food safety of the finished product. 

#4

OUR ANCIENT RECIPE. The research into the quality of the raw materials, the exclusive and personal ancient recipe with the right combination of spices and aromas, the care in the processing (we select and peel each clove of garlic by hand) with constant checks and the right maturation times make our Colonnata PGI lard of special quality and one of a kind. 

One thing is certain, once tasted, even the most skeptical person adds our Lardo di Colonnata to their list of favorite foods. We only use natural ingredients, spices and aromatic herbs selected in the uncontaminated nature of the Carrara side of the Apuan Alps, the maturation lasts at least six months, following a recipe created more than four generations ago. Furthermore, it does not contain allergens, additives, preservatives, colourants, gluten, lactose, ionizing and nanomaterials, genetically modified organisms. It does not contain and was not obtained through the use of chemical products. Lardo di Colonnata releases saturated fats during maturation, being rich in omega 9 which reduces bad cholesterol and prevents the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
