For the N'duja:

Dice pork belly into large squares. In a large bowl, mix together the pork, salt, pepper, garlic, Calabrian chili paste, and wine. Marinate overnight. Pass through a meat grinder fitted with a small die. Stuff into a sausage casing and hang in salumeria at 50 percent humidity and 50°F for 6 weeks.
