At 3,905 m, the Ortles is the highest mountain in South Tyrol, and the north face in particular is considered the highest ice wall in the Eastern Alps. But why is it so important for Recla's speck? The company is located between the Ortles massif and the Palla Bianca massif. The glaciers in the area have a strong influence on the climate, the air is very dry, fresh and pure. Away from the high-traffic roads, Recla uses 90 percent of outside air for drying and curing. The excellent curing of the speck therefore depends firstly on the area and its climate. This is why the Ortles also appears on the Recla family speck packages.
