Since the time of the Etruscans and Romans, the Chianina has been the native bovine breed typical of Tuscany. It’s a large size breed with white coat originally used mainly for towing. Considering that Chianina is a lean meat, its consume has been increased over the centuries. In addition to the famous florentine steak, it’s also used for the preparation of delicious ragouts to dress, for example, the special italian pasta called “Tagliatelle”. The farming method and the Chianina origin are protected at European level from PGI “Vitellone Bianco dell’Appennino Centrale” and the related Consortium.
