Chianina is a cattle breed that was originally used for draft purposes. Nowadays it is raised for its meat. Chianina meat is very lean and only in very large specimens can some marbling be found, due to the fat component surrounding the muscles. This fat, however, only accentuates the meat’s flavour. This breed is used to produce the ‘fiorentina’ steak, a high-quality T-Bone steak. This cut’s unique flavor also depends on the maturing times, that are never less than 15 days in order to make the meat more tender and promote the protein breakdown of the muscle. The result of the process is the formation of polypeptides and aminoacids, which contribute to create the steak’s signature flavor.
