The Valtiberina, the valley of the Tiber, is where you can meet the authentic flavors and scents of the countryside, where the boundary between organic and natural is imperceptible, even where companies produce everything, like the peasant farms who knew how to use the land. The sheep, the Chianina, pigs of each breed, small farms and fruit, the vegetables in the fertile plains, the cigar Kentucky, wheat, barley, chestnuts, herbs are on every corner, in every mountain.
It is not easy to say which food is the most significant in the valley, from chestnuts, pasta, tasty and authentic cheeses and Chianina beef. You can learn why the Chianina after the breeders who used to call their cows by name, or the very intriguing story behind Tuscan pasta. It does not matter where you decide to go, but it is important to make a path between the companies throughout this paradise, where nature is truly pristine, charming and very tasty!
