Pork belly

Pork belly includes both the fat from the belly and the lean from the side. Fat and lean meat are more or less equivalent in weight, while the texture is the perfect balance between the tenderness of the fat and the firmness of the lean meat. A true explosion of taste!

Description

In our pork belly you can easily taste all the nature and the tradition of the Casentino valley. Our Grigio del Casentino pigs are free to feed on what woods have to offer and this makes their meat – especially the fat – extremely tasty and savory. In our pork belly we only add a pinch of salt because this meat is just perfect already, nothing else needed. 

Pork belly is an historic product in Tuscany, where it was the typical dinner of many farmers’ families together with a slice of sciapo (unsalted) bread. Today, pork belly can be used in a thousand different ways, in the classic platter as well as for the preparation of sauces and gravies. If you are looking for an unforgettable culinary experience, however, we advise you to taste it alone, just as it is.

Why are our cured meats so special?

Our cured meats are:

  • Tasty and healthy. Our meat has an incomparable taste because our pigs feed on nature
  • Ethical and sustainable. Our animals are free to move in their natural habitat; we only slaughter pigs that are at least 14-month-old and we use all of their meat
  • Safe, for all. Our products mature in humidity and climate-controlled cellars and are naturally free of gluten, lactose and allergens  
  • Natural. We season our cured products only with spices and herbs, with no preservatives, dyes, nitrite, nitrate, artificial flavorings or thickening agents
