Pork loin

Pork loin is a precious cut that we obtain from the back of the pig. Our Grigio del Casentino meat does not require long cooking to get tender or seasonings to intensify the flavors, because our semi-free range bred pigs have a natural tastier meat.

Description

Pork loin – arista in Italian – is the most representative main course of Tuscan farmers’ cuisine. Its Italian name dates back to 1439, when the Greek Cardinal Bressarione tasted a slice of this meat during the Ecumenical Council of the Roman and Greek Church in Florence. “Aristos!” he remarked – that is, “the best” – and the people of Florence thought he related to the pork cut and not specifically to its taste. Since then, this cut is known in Italian as arista.

Our pork loin is a cut with a good proportion of fat: our pigs live in the woods and in winter they put on fat to protect from cold. This fat, which is commonly trimmed in the industrial meat, is precisely what makes this cut excellent. When it melts, it protects the meat and adds flavor. Cooking does not necessarily have to be long, it’s enough that heat gets beyond the fat, to the heart of the piece.

Why is our fresh meat so special?

Our fresh meat is:

  • 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. 
  • Perfectly balanced. Lean meat and fat are in the right proportion: the meat is healthy and scrumptious
  • Pure and simple. With a raw material such as this, you don’t need anything else. Our fresh meat does not require long cooking or elaborate recipes, since it is just perfect already.
