More Information
Description Piece of charcuterie made with organic meat from "Cinta Senese DOP" pigs, bred in the Savigni farm in Pavana, in the mountains between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna, enriched with fennel seeds
Appearance The grain is medium, the slice is bright red, the pieces of fat are small and you can see the pieces of wild fennel seeds
Taste The fat part contributes to the sweetness of the salami; overall on the palate it is soft, with intense notes of fennel
Curiosity The "Finocchiona" IGP is a cured meat produced with fresh cuts of meat obtained from heavy pigs. This product stands out for its characteristic fennel flavoring, which according to the production specification must be used in seeds and/or flowers. Finally, always according to the rules established by the disciplinary, the production area must fall within the borders of the Tuscany region, excluding the islands, because this is the area in which it has consolidated over time the production of this typical salami
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
Suggestions Unmissable in a platter of Tuscan cured meats

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, from 400 up to 1000 meters high, Savigni have chosen to raise their own animals, free to graze in the woods of Fattoria Bonaria in San Marcello Pistoiese and Sambuca Pistoiese. 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.
