meat from a young cow

Favoured for its tenderness, scottona comes for a cow that has never given birth and has been slaughtered before it reaches 16 months. Often grilled, or used as a filling in agnolotti.

Mede in Lombardy serves it up in a variety of ways in June at the week-long Sagra della Scottona.
