Volpi Soppresata Salami – Food Review


Volpi describes this very good salami as, “A coarse ground salami with a surprisingly smooth finish.”

The word “coarse” invites the comparison, coarser than what?  Compared to the other salami reviewed here, the individual bits and pieces might be a little bigger than most, but nothing really to notice.

The smooth finish, however, is notable.  But what does a smooth finish mean for salami?  Well, I’m not sure.  If this was wine or whiskey, I’d be pretty sure of the meaning.  However, my observation is that, either because of the slightly bigger (coarser) bits of fat or a higher fat concentration in the salami, this salami is less chewy and more melt-in-the-mouth than some other salami.

The taste is very good.  Garlic is not listed on the label.  But even without a garlic presence, this salami is still very tasty. This is another fine product from Volpi.  At $3.99 for 8 ounces, this is bargain at Trader Joe’s.
