Long live the offal! Who says it is not as noble as the other cuts? Our fresh sambudello sausage perfectly proves it: aromatic and spicy, it intrigues the most unconventional palates. It is the epitome of the exploitation of every part of the pork and we gave it a new, re-discovered guise.
Fresh sambudello sausage stems from the need to save the meat for the periods of famine. The name itself proves it: sambudello is a Tuscan word that comes from “s’ha un budello?” (“do we have a gut?”). Pork butchers would try to save and store all they could after the butchering, including the less noble cuts, for which they need a natural casing. Our recipe is less “strong” than the original, but still, intense and genuine.
Wild fennel flowers, picked in the fields and dried naturally, perfectly match this super tasty meat, which is just slightly fatter than the normal sausages. Undoubtedly, it is one of the most unconventional products, traditional and local, but with a great personality. Aromatic, spicy and even sweet, our sambudello can become a truly interesting ingredient for traditional and creative recipes.
Our fresh meat is:
By nature, I rely on empathy a lot and when I find it in someone, I always give a lot of trust. Working with the Grigio del Casentino guys, I found two qualities that are fundamental to me: humility and education. They have the ability to listen to those who transform and consume their product, constructive criticism and improvements to be made. In addition to this very important foundation, I have found in them my own values: respect for the raw material and its great quality. So I would say that our strong bond is born from respect: respect among us, respect for the animal, respect for the raw material that arises from it, and last but not least, respect for the environment that surrounds us.
We decided to select this pork after a long search. This product is unique in its kind, as those who raise the pigs with great dedication and love for their work. Once you’ve tried it, you can’t go back.
I decided to use Grigio del Casentino pork meat on a colleague’s advice. I must say that it exceeded my expectations, which were high already. Fresh meat is very different from what we are normally used to. It is tender and flavorful, with a perfect balance of fat that tends to be sweet but always tasty. Paolo and Massimiliano are professionals like few others, always attentive to every stage of the business relationship, from the order to the processing, to the delivery. It is a pleasure to work with them!
Why Grigio del Casentino pork?
The philosophy of our company is based on solid roots that tell of origin, innovation and hospitality, where “origin” means our homeland, Casentino. When we talk about Casentino, the forests, game, mushrooms, and chestnuts immediately come to mind. But for us it means something more: it means Grigio del Casentino pig. Along our journey, we found Massimiliano. Thanks to his skills to work with meat and to his love in explaining this meat, he fascinated and convinced us. We were looking for a special pork meat, a meat that was processed with passion, because passion turns into taste, that taste that you feel and that makes the difference. We found this meat and now it is a permanent guest on our menus. Long live Casentino, long live Calistro, long live Grigio del Casentino!
Hello everyone, my name is Bernardo Andrea Giangrosso and I am the manager and chef of the restaurant and wine bar Sottosopra in Bolgheri. We have started a cooperation with Grigio del Casentino® to offer our customers a true and top-quality Tuscan product. I was especially amazed by the structure and the intense flavor of the fat of these pigs, which are raised in a semi-free range, in a deep respect for the animals themselves. We are proud to continue this collaboration given the more than positive feedback from our customers.
