Food Shopping in Tuscany's insider take:

If you're staying in the Chianti area and have the chance to cook, a visit to Italy's most famous butcher, Dario Cecchini, is more or less obligatory (11 Via XX Luglio, Panzano, near Greve; 39-055-852-020). Cecchini not only has the best Tonna del Chianti (pork shoulder packed in salt and then cooked in wine, sold in a vacuum-sealed pouch) and salumi (cured meats) in the area, he's also a larger-than-life showman who is liable to recite Dante at you as he carves. At the end of 2006, Cecchini opened an informal restaurant, Solo Ciccia ("only meat"), just across the road from his shop, where the traditional Tuscan menu revolves around his meaty wares. In Siena, Morbidi is a good all-round deli, where you can pick up fine Tuscan olive oils, salamis, vegetable and olive pastes, and cheeses, including a selection from the family's own dairy in Monteriggioni (75 Via Banchi di Sopra; 39-0577-280-268).
