It is doused with red wine, encased in pig’s bladder, then left to age for six to nine months in highly controlled conditions before it is ready to eat.

The expert knows what wine it should be paired with, what food the pig was fed, how it was slaughtered, and is acutely aware of the enormous effort it took to butcher the carcass and strip the meat.
