The word "rustico" means "unrefined" in Italian; a perfect word for this type of prosciutto. The producers leave most of the fat and skin on the leg instead of removing it. This creates a special taste when it is sliced and the meat is consumed along with the fatty part. Enjoy this prosciutto paired with sweet melon on a charcuterie board or thinly sliced in your favorite sandwich.
