Great for cooking
From a respected producer in Chianti
This is Pancetta the Italian way, with a generous amount of glistening pork fat, which is only natural from a cut which comes from the belly of the pig, and will add immense amounts of flavour to your dishes. It is made from pork belly, the same cut used to make bacon. However, it is not smoked, and there is no sugar involved. Just garlic, salt and spices, in particular a liberal dose of freshly ground pepper. The colour of the fat speaks volumes about the quality, you want lively pink hues, and clean aroma. Pancetta is almost always used as an ingredient in other dishes, sometimes providing flavour, and other times taking a commanding role.
Renieri has been making outstanding charcuterie since the 1950s, strictly following traditional methods and putting extra care in sourcing the best Italian meats and ingredients. Based in Chianti, they are renowned for the high quality and superb flavour of their products

Chunky and flavorful
Lovely thick cut mix of fat and meat. Makes a beautiful carbonara.
Maybe I got lucky but my piece was excellent. It was fresh with a nice mix of meat and fat. I diced it and rendered it first to make a risotto and it was perfect for what I was cooking. I would but it again.
not good quality, had no flavour and hardly any meat. wanted to use it for a stew and it added nothing to it. will not buy again
grey and smelly
Not a fan at all. Opened it well within the use by date and the meat was grey with a horrendous smell (when I say meat, I mean fat because as others have said, there is virtually no meat at all and yes, I know its supposed to be incredibly fatty but this cut was probably 95% fat). Despite its hideous smell, I persevered and thinly sliced and gently heated to render the fat then crisp up what was left in the hopes it would become nice. Sadly, it really did not. The sour smell only worsened and when I tried a piece the flavour was awful. Im gutted to say I had to throw the whole lot in the bin. I may give it another chance in the future but if I do, Ill be using it on the day it arrives in the hope that itll smell and taste a lot better than the one I received recently.
!!! FAT !!!
It was a LARD, a kiss of Pork !!!
As it should be
People complaining about this being fatty - its pancetta, thats how it should be. Great for making carbonara, 4 stars as I have had tastier pancetta
