The “Red Tuna” (Tonno Rosso or Tonno di Corsa) is considered the most exquisite of the various tuna species. It is fished exclusively in the Mediterranean Sea between May and June. Salis then ages the tuna for six months and it is immersed in olive oil when packed. The aging process aids in producing the special flavor and texture. Its color is red-tinted, deep and rich; the texture is muscular and meaty; the flavor true and clean.
