A favourite for centuries
Chianina is the oldest, largest breed of beef cattle in the world. Their most famous cuts are the Bistecca alla Fiorentina und das Bistecca di Razza Pura. These giant steaks come from Tuscan Chianina cows, which reach a height of up to 1.80 metres and a weight of 1,500 kilograms – the largest breed of cattle in the world. Our Chianina products are sourced from an Italian breeders’ association. The cuts are distinguished by their tenderness, succulence and fine marbling.

Where do Chianina cattle come from?
For at least 2,200 years, Chianina cows have grazed in the Chiana Valley and Middle Tiber Valley, spreading towards Northern Italy over the course of centuries. A distinguishing characteristic of Chianina cattle is their reddish-brown coat at birth, which assumes a porcelain-white colour in adult animals.
How is Chianina meat eaten?
Those who wish to sample the Italian classic in a restaurant should ensure that the establishment is certified “amici della chianina”. If it is not, the meat on your plate might be anything but Chianina – the real thing is a true rarity. It is seasoned exclusively with salt and finest virgin olive oil.
