Peposo dell'Impruneta is a typical dish of Tuscan regional cuisine based on beef muscle meat, red wine and black pepper. Where does this particular name come from? It is said that this recipe comes from Impruneta, a small town in the hills surrounding Florence. This village was once very famous for its terracotta kilns and the kiln workers had begun to prepare this dish by overcooking meat products they brought from home in their own pans, placing them in a corner of the oven while it was on for work. They added garlic, wine and black pepper to make the flavor of a dish more pleasant which, cooked like this, certainly couldn't be too delicate!
