Rigatino is the pork belly, i.e. one of the most flavourful and fattest pork cuts. We only choose the highest quality of Casentino grey pork supplied by Grigio del Casentino.
Pork belly is extraordinarily delicious thanks to its high fat content. Since they are reared outdoors, grey pigs develop a high content of fat mass to protect themselves from the cold winter in Casentino; it is a good fat, though, that is unsaturated and not harmful to health and that enhances meat in a unique way.
Casentino grey pig is a swine breed resulting from the cross of “Large white” sows with “Cinta senese” boars. The company Grigio del Casentino rears them in the semi-wild on the slopes of the National park of the Casentino forests in a wonderful valley, where they eat in a natural way and live outdoors in the fresh air.
We like to grill Rigatino and cook it until it forms a crispy, delicious, golden crust. We also like to cut it and add it to mixed meat skewers to kick the flavour up a notch or we slice it and use for a pasta dish or for an omelette; we also like to toss it in the pan with turnip greens or herbs. To sum it all up, it is incredibly delicious!
