“FINOCCHIONA” PGI FENNEL SALAMI (1.4 kg / 3 lb)
One of the great Tuscan charcuterie products was certified as a PGI product in 2015 by the EU. This product is stuffed in a natural casing, prepared according to the traditional Tuscan recipe, and follows the regulation that requires the use of fresh meat and natural materials. An authentic Made in Tuscany product, here offered in a medium-size variation of 1.4 kg. Salumificio Gerini, the founding member of Consorzio della Finocchiona PGI, worked hard to achieve this prestigious certification in the last few years. The top star in this product is the fennel which creates a unique and aromatic taste. The origin of this kind of salami dates back to when Tuscan innkeepers tried to hide possible flaws in wine or bad food by adding extra fennel to cover the taste. The pungent aroma of fennel seeds masks all any unpleasant tastes or flavors. Another interesting fact is that since the PGI regulation requires the use of natural fibers to bind Finocchiona PGI pieces, Gerini chose a distinct red cotton thread since it is one of the colors of both Gerini’s brand and the city of Florence.
