Finocchiona

Finocchiona is very similar to salami, but with a smoother mixture, enriched with seeds of fennel and sprinkled with red wine. It is a soft kind of salami, usually prepared with lean and fat mass of the belly pig, which has been rough-cut, giving a coarse texture. It is salted flavoured with seeds of fennel, pepper, garlic and red wine. It is liable to be eaten as a starter, accompanied with Tuscan unsalted bread and a good red wine.
