It is then hand tied or netted according to customer requirements.

Curing
This process takes place in two distinct phases: a drying phase in which the product receives warm air in order to remove moisture for about five days and the actual curing phase in which temperature and humidity remain constant until optimal curing is achieved. The curing period varies from 15 to 30 days.

Portions
The weight of each salami is about 350 grams. Barolo salamis are traditionally tied in 3 piece chains, weighing a total of approx. 1 kg per chain.

Shelf life
Barolo raw salami does not have a pre-defined shelf life; nevertheless it is best before 3/4 months from curing to fully appreciate its organoleptic properties.
