Finocchiona salami is one of the most traditional and exceptional types of salami produced in Tuscany. It is made using choice pork selected from pigs raised in the Chianti area in the province of Florence, though due to its popularity production has spread throughout the region.

Legend has it that finocchiona owes its origins to a thief at a fair near the town of Prato, who stole a fresh salami and hid it in a stand of wild fennel. When he returned for it, he found it had absorbed the aromas of its hiding place.

It makes a great antipasti and it’s best sliced not too thinly, served with saltless bread and wine.

What comprises finocchiona? Well, fennel we’ve already mentioned (finocchio means ‘fennel’), but it also has been made with peppercorns, garlic, and 4 year-old Chianti (which ensures that it’s a Tuscan Salame).

Finocchiona is a wonderfully full spiced meat. The Chianti within it is apparent, and the fennel gives it that little zing.

Preparation technology.
Pieces of lean meat from the shoulder of the pig (50%) and the hard fat of the bacon (50%) are milled medium grain and seasoned with salt and herbs. It is encased in natural casings, usually bondeana with a ligature tight and narrow.
