What goes around comes around with The G.O.A.T. This visually stunning bite pairs an Italian salami with Dutch aged goat cheese from Holland, for a marriage made in charcuterie heaven. Our Sopressata Salami, richly flavored by fennel, garlic and spices, is slow aged for a mild flavor. It mates deliciously with the nutty, buttery, caramel creaminess of the Midnight Moon gouda. The goat gouda and Sopressata make a luscious foundation for act three: the sweet-yet-tart taste of ripe blackberry. Then, bring it all back to where you began with the honeyed crunch of candied pecan.

The recipe for COLUMBUS® Sopressata Salami originates from the Abruzzese region of Italy. We use sweet fennel and fresh garlic to give this rich salame a highly complex aroma. Our slow aging process brings out the distinctive mild flavor of the meat. Aged 21 to 51 days depending on size.
