The most famous Salumeria in Tuscany, Macelleria Falorni, can be found on Piazza G. Matteotti, Greve-in-Chianti. It is there that eighth-generation Falorni family brothers Stefano and Lorenzo continue to cure meats in the traditional Tuscan way. Since 1729 their family has made the finest salames, pancetta and prosciutto natural to the Tuscan region.
Their charcuterie is made only from the ancient 14th-century Cinta Sense breed of pigs that roam free and feed on acorns in the Tuscan forests. This produces richness in the meat that is dry-cured by the Falorni family in their ancient cellars, using traditional methods and local spices.
Ingredients: pork, salt, natural spices, potassium nitrate curing salt, ascorbic acid, dextrose.
