Soppressata, is also know as capocchia or copa di testa. It is a pressed sausage from Italy made of the tongue, pork belly, head, stomach and various other bits of meat.

This version uses flavorings including coriander, black pepper, nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon. Another variation of this meat is called soppressata in cuffia.
