PGI Finocchiona (Fennel Seed Salami) - Natural Whole.
This version of PGI Finocchiona has a net weight of about 500 g and is packaged whole in natural casing.
PGI Finocchiona is produced with cuts of pork of the highest quality. Among these we find: shoulder, ham, rump, coppa, and bacon. The processing is characterized by the addition of aromatic wild fennel seeds, salt, pepper and garlic. This natural and genuine mix gives the Tuscan salami its unique and unmistakable scent.
The ancient origins of this sausage reside in the Tuscan territory, where wild fennel was already used in medieval times to replace pepper, which in those days was much more expensive and difficult to find.
The term Finocchiona is also reported in various Italian vocabularies and encyclopedic dictionaries since 1875. Among these there is also the renowned “Treccani”, who associates it with the definition of typical Tuscan salami.
To maintain the fresh and soft consistency of the PGI Finocchiona dough, it is necessary to keep the sausage in the fridge, covered with a linen or cotton cloth.
The best food pairings are obtained with Tuscan silly bread, with low and crispy focaccia and with salty flatbreads. To bring out the best of the aroma of fennel, you can use side dishes of cooked vegetables in oil, or some thin flakes of “Primo Sale” Slightly Aged Pecorino Cheese. Finocchiona is widely used in typical Tuscan cuisine, but its use is now also extended to all other Italian regions.
This salami is also perfect to enrich buffet or aperitif menus. To cheer up your guests you can in fact prepare bruschetta with avocado cream and PGI Finocchiona, cut into slices or crumbled. Another excellent idea is to make croutons with a veil of ricotta or pesto, slices of PGI Finocchiona and flakes of “Primo Sale” Slightly Aged Pecorino Cheese.
As for the drinks and in case it is consumed during an appetizing lunch or a rich dinner, this sausage goes perfectly with “Chianti” - Camperchi, a red wine with a rich and full-bodied taste. Alternatively, at other times of the day, it is also possible to accompany it with bubbles, for example “Gisso” - Buccelletti, or with blonde craft beers, such as our “Rovina” - Golden Ale.
