Carne salada is one of the great Trentino specialties. Originally from the Lake Garda area, it can be found throughout the Trentino today. The product is made by marinating meat for 20-25 days in a mixture containing sea salt, laurel leaves, black peppercorns, juniper berries, garlic and rosemary. It is served either eaten cooked or as it is.
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL FROM GARDA TRENTINO
The Olio Extravergine d'Oliva del Garda Trentino is made in the northern part of Lake Garda on the Trentino side. The olives used to make this oil come from ancient trees grown on the hills that surround Riva del Garda, Arco, Nago, Torbole, Tenno and Dro. Its taste is delicately fruity and spicy, with a hay and almond aroma.
TRENTINO DOC MARZEMINO
A young, fruity red wine with a slightly bitter taste - achieves the peak of its perfection on the basaltic terrains of Vallagarina (Rovereto). This wine was so famous that it was mentioned by Mozart in his Don Giovanni ("versa il vino, eccellente Marzemino!")
