From Cinta Senese pigs raised in the woods

Perfect on Tagliere Toscano, as aperitivo with Tuscan red wine & Pecorino di pienza

The Cinta Senese Capocollo consists of the neck part of the pig from the nape to the 5th rib; after being “massaged” with a mixture of salt, pepper, vinegar, and crushed garlic, it is sautéed and left to mature; afterward, it is washed and covered with black pepper and wild fennel, then wrapped in yellow paper. It appears red with rosy fat areas, with an intense flavour on which the fennel stands out. Le Fontanelle farm, located in the surroundings of Chianciano Terme, specializes in the “wild” breeding of Cinta Senese pigs. Their Cinta Senese cured meats are therefore obtained from animals raised in the wild. Grazing in the woods and arable land is integrated into the measure appropriate with flour of vegetable origin, following the ancient Tuscan traditions. The cured meats they produce are: Shoulder, Sausage, Salami, Imbrogliona, Pancetta, Guanciale, Capocollo, Loin, Lard, Ham and Gran Riserva Ham. All these meats come from the Cinta Senese that they breed, for Le Fontanelle the quality of the product is in fact fundamental and it is 100% Cinta Senese, in order to educate the new generations to the flavors and smells of this ancient breed, which risked becoming extinct during the past century.

After the order we prepare it in 24-48 hours and shipping within Europe usually takes 3 to 5 days if all products are available.

If a product is listed in the cart as “Available on backorder” the timing increases by 48h because we have to receive it from the manufacturer itself.

Our priority is to pack and ship the products as safely as possible. Wine and oil bottles are shipped with special cardboard protections, there will be no breakages.

All cold cuts and cheeses are vacuum sealed. In summer we also use dry ice and coolers to keep products fresh and their quality intact.
