In 2013, we introduced you to the tiny Sàgona estate. Nestled high in the mountains of Eastern Tuscany—at about 500 meters above sea level—it is roughly the same altitude as the Grati estate in Rufina or Carnasciale.
Sàgona’s claim to olive oil fame is its priceless collection of 100-year-old olive trees in the Pratomagno mountains, on the eastern bank of the Arno River. But it also the site of a project to bring back several varieties of nearly extinct Tuscan beans, including the famed Fagioli Zolfini; the rare Cece Piccino del Pratomagno, a tiny variety of chick pea; and diminutive blackeyed peas called Fagioli dall’Ochio Nero.
For all of this, we have young Daniele Corrotti to thank. His tireless work follows a centuries old tradition where, in addition to growing olives, local farmers have endured the back-breaking work of growing its famed indigenous varieties of beans.
Grown on rocky terraces about 200 meters above the olive trees, the beans were threatened with extinction, but thanks to Daniele and others (working with the University of Florence), they are making a small comeback, with the work still all done by hand.
Reflecting the conditions, each of these beans is far smaller than what we’re used to. The Cece are about half the size of our chickpeas. But their small size gives them the incredible texture that makes them perfect in soups and with pasta. The Zolfino beans look like cannellini but, again, they’re about half the size. Slow cooked until al dente, and dressed with just olive oil and perhaps rosemary, they are heavenly. And the tiny black-eyed peas could give any Southern U.S. black-eye pea a run for its money.
