Terre di Baccio’s Chianti Saffron has been cultivated in the Chianti hills since the Late Middle Ages. The saffron flowers must be harvested by hand in dry Autumn days, in the early morning. The stigma is then extracted and lightly toasted, so as to preserve its characteristic scent and colour.
Our Chianti saffron is an ideal ingredient for a saffron risotto, a frittata, and to bake cakes and biscuits. It can also be used to make a delicious gelato!
