Spianata belongs to a broad family of traditional Roman charcuterie from Calabria, with Spianata being one of the earliest types of salami produced. The famous Italian cured meat is made from lean pork thigh meat mixed with cubes of lard. Its taste is more on the spicy side as it can be produced into either of two variations: the sweet Spianata with black peppercorns or the spicy Spianata with red pepper.
