"From ordinary mass-produced prosciutto to La Quercia is a leap in complexity and subtlety, you feel like doors have been opened and your prosciutto palate has been expanded in all directions. From La Quercia’s standard product to the organic green label is another such leap, introducing a cheesy funkiness that’s rich and profound."
— James Beard Award Winner Michael Gebert
"...rich, aged pork happiness."
— Will Fertman,
Culture Magazine
