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 of the figs are glorious with a chilled glass of bubbly Centanni Passerina Spumante.
