For our meat dishes and the famous NELLA's sandwiches we use meat from "Cinta Senese" animals bred, with mantle characterized by a clearly different color strip around them, hence the name that remembers a belt (cinta).
Breed of ancient origins, has spread to its robustness, rusticity and easy adaptability breeding in the wild in the woods or in grasslands grazed from which it draws part of his livelihood by eating fruits, grass and grains. This animal lives well in Tuscany just a result of the type of pastures and forests present. And from these territorial peculiarities that derive also the unique characteristics of its power and the taste of the meat of the protected PDO. The meat of Cinta Senese are characterized by a strong presence of marbling fat. In the transformation in meats and sausages, the products are characterized by the organoleptic properties that make them true excellence of the Tuscan tradition.
