Fabro – Chianina IGP

The area of Fabro, Montegabbione and Val di Chiana in the north-west of the Umbria region is also known for the breeding of the precious Chianina breed of cattle (whose name is due precisely to the valley and the Chiani river). This excellent cattle breed is historically appreciated since the Etruscans and Romans. The specimens of these cattle are majestic and really reach considerable dimensions. The quality and taste of its meats make it one of the most sought-after and most used breeds for the preparation of cuts and steaks.
