Each Spring, I feast on the bounty of my fig trees and especially enjoy them paired with Speck, a ham very much like prosciutto but smoked at the final stage of curing. The smoky, salty ham combined with the honey sweetness and slightly nutty flavors are glorious with a chilled glass of bubbly Centanni Passerina Spumante.
