Cinta Senese & Saffron


A funny and relaxing day crossing the hills of Tuscany immersed in a wonderful and generous nature .

We will take you discovering two of the many DOP Tuscan products, learning about the restrictive rules of this important denomination that guarantees the origin and lavoration and the high quality.

" Cinta Senese" is a tasty production of cured meat made from an ancient race of white and black pigs distinguished by the thick white stripe that looks like a belt ( cinta) . They live wild in the Tuscan forests feeding on acorns, wild tubers, roots and truffles.


"Saffron" is the precious spice used in this area since the Etruscan times, with its warm-red-orange color is exclusively used in dues, medicine and cuisine.
