Dario Cecchini, butcher and showman at Panzano in Chianti

Anyone visiting Panzano in Chianti, a pretty town on the via Chiantigiana halfway between Florence and Sienna, should drop in at Dario Cecchini’s butcher’s shop near Piazza Bucciarelli. Here you will see not only excellent cuts of meat and prepared meats, but with a bit of luck, Dario Cecchini himself – probably the most extravert butcher in the world.

Dario is the great champion of bistecca alla fiorentina and indeed has three eateries in Panzano, all prominently featuring meat, especially steak. He has done a great deal to promote Panzano as a gastronomic destination, especially by organising food fairs in this town.
