Should I pet Ciro or eat Ciro?
This what my daughter Stella asked me while visiting Madonna delle Querce.
A real paradise for pigs of Cinta Senese.
Here you can have a farm tour and than a wild pork Cinta senese tasting, all in 1 hour tour and tasting.
Madonna delle Querce farm breeds Cinta Senese pigs in a semi-wild environment in Montepulciano, a lovely town near Siena.
The Cinta Senese is a very strong ancient pig breed that is all black with a white belt (cinta in Italian means belt).
At this farm they pride theirselves on natural feeding, wood pasture, hut pigsty and attention to every pig. Besides, they also breed the Grigio della Querce, a kind of pig that comes from the crossbreed between the Cinta Senese pig and the Large White. The cold-cuts made from the latter are rich in flavour but also low-fat.
