Italian wine and salumi

Salumi (singular salume) are Italian meat products typical of an antipasto, predominantly made from pork and cured. Salumi also include bresaola, which is made from beef, and some cooked products, such as mortadella and prosciutto cotto.

The word salumi, "salted meat," derives from Latin sal, "salt".[1]
