Niman Ranch uses heritage breed pork in small-batch artisanal production and old-world techniques without nitrates or nitrites. Niman Ranch livestock have been humanely raised according to the strictest animal handling protocols. The Hot Sopressata is similar to uncured pepperoni, but deeper in flavor. The complexity of its spices and fine grind of the meat make each slice melt in your mouth. This is an ideal companion for a dry Pinot Noir and ripe brie. Throw on a few juicy berries, like strawberries and cherries, and you have a perfect charcuterie experience.
