What is Chianina PGI?

The Chianina is a particular breed of cattle, native to Tuscany and Umbria. It is distinguished by its white coat and a high quality meat that even the ancients liked. The real Chianina still comes from small farms and is produced in limited quantities. Unfortunately, many also sell meat that is not at all. For this reason, at Lungarno23 we always display the I.G.P mark, to guarantee a traceable product of controlled and certified origin.

Why it is called Chianina: the close connection with the land.

The name "Chianina" comes from the territory of the Val di Chiana where the breed is bred. The deep bond with the lands of origin has made this meat a local excellence dear to all Florentines.  

Those visiting Florence cannot fail to taste it to savor an essential part of the city's gastronomic culture. 

Chianina meat, the quality kind, has always been a must at Lungarno23.

Lungarno23 was created precisely with the intention of enhancing this precious Tuscan heritage. To ensure a safe and high-quality product, all of our burgers and selected Chianina-based dishes are registered with the Consorzio di Tutela del Vitellone Bianco dell'Appennino Centrale seal.
