Curiosity The Cinta Senese is an ancient pig breed from the Siena area. It risked disappearing after the Second World War when it was replaced with more productive breeds, suitable for intensive breeding. Cinta Senese owes its salvation to the passion of some breeders, including the Savigni family. These pigs need a lot of space and open air, in this way the muscles tone up and the animal gains weight slowly. Just think that a Large White pig is ready for slaughter after 6 months while for Cinta it takes at least 12 months. Cinta Senese pigs love to eat acorns, olives, chestnuts, tubers and berries, and are fed with organic supplements. Besides being of excellent quality, Cinta Senese fat is rich in Omega 3
Our selection The Savigni family produces its cured meats seriously, genuinely and with passion, with a very short production chain, from the pig breeding to the production of cured meats. In Finocchiona they consider a key feature the visible fennel seeds that differentiate their Finocchiona from all those ones in which fennel is only added as aroma

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.
