Curiosity The Cinta Senese is an ancient swine breed of the Siena area. It threatened to disappear after the Second World War when rustic and unproductive breeds were replaced with those most suitable for intensive farming. This breed must be saved to the passion of some breeders, including the Savigni family. These pigs need a lot of space and open air, so the muscles tone up and the animal slowly increases weight. Suffice it to think that a Large Waiht breed pork is ready for slaughter after 6 months while Cinta serves at least 12 months. The animals love to eat acorns, olives, chestnuts, tubers and berries, and are fed with biological integrations. Fat plus being of the highest quality is rich in Omega 3
Our selection 'Savigni' as they define themselves, produce their salami with seriousness and genuinely, even the finocchiona shows it, in fact it is important for them to see the fennel seeds in the dough to differentiate it from all the foliage to which it was Added only the aroma of fennel

Macelleria Savigni - Pavana Pistolese (PT) - Tuscany

Why we chose them
There is a small village in the Tuscan-Emilian appenine, where everyone knows Savigni. Pavana Pistoiese is located in the woods, in an enchanted valley. In this valley, 400 meters high, Savigni have chosen to raise their own animals, free to graze in the 1020 hectares of woods. Every day, Fausto, the father, together with his sons Nicolò and Mileto, renews a difficult choice: the choice of High Quality (with a capital letters, as they love to specify). The choice of organic breeding is a valiant choise and Savigni contributes to make this way of raising pigs recognisable: without antibiotics, without GMOs, without artificial insemination and without cages for births, bred with an integration of organic fodder only during the winter months. A great attention to the animals because this is the only way to obtain a good meat. They have their own lab, monitored 24 hours on 24, for meats processing, drying and curing. They make everything by hand: cut, knead, salted, putting pepper and spices, bag and tie. For salting, they chose the "Salfiore di Cervia". Straight from the sea, it is washed with brine; it maintains its natural moisture and the sea preserves all the trace elements. It is a sweet salt, that goes well with pork.
