Ham Jambon de Bosses DOP

The Vallée d’Aoste Jambon de Bosses (PDO product) is araw ham spiced with mountain herbs, produced at an altitude of 1600 meters in the location bearing the same name, Saint-Rhémy-en-Bosses, situated in the Gran San Bernardo Valley, at the edge of the Swiss border.
The characteristic flavor of the 'jambon', with a curing time of at least one year, is due to several factors: the skill of the 'curers', (inherited from father to son), the dry climate, the particular exposition and the crossing air flows. The juniper, thyme and herbs of the valley which endow it with a delicate and aromatic smell, whilst hay, which is used during its seasoning, gives it its unmistakable fragrance.
