Description

Finocchiona is a fermented and dried, all pork sausage. A light and aromatic salami, it’s seasoned with toasted fennel and fennel pollen. Finocchiona originated in the Renaissance, and possibly before, in the Middle Ages. The use of fennel was an alternative to black pepper, which was very expensive at the time when fennel grew wild and abundant in the Tuscan countryside.
