I just had Culatello for the first time. Its very similar to Parma Ham/Prosciutto. I am not sure it's worth the premium. It's £10.00 a pack in M&S. The web says it's the King of Salumi.
Good Culatello can be great, the premium relies on the fact that it is made from a singular muscle type taken from the best part of the rear leg that unfortunately means the rest of the leg cannot be turned into proscuitto. I think once sliced and bagged, charcuterie loses 25% of it's essence.
