TYPES OF TRUFFLES AND AREAS OF ORIGIN

Truffles are rare. They grow in a symbiotic relationship with the roots of trees.

Harvesting them requires expertly trained dogs.

Our truffle hunters are mainly found in Tuscany (San Miniato, Arezzo, Florence), Piedmont (Alba), Umbria (Città di Castello), Lazio and Marche.

We will always give you confirmation of the origin, as we do for all our customers. As for the white truffles, it will mostly come to you from San Miniato and Alba. That is the top place for truffles in the world.

For us, quality comes first and foremost, that's why we only source fresh, high-quality truffles that come from organic production to ensure their maximum flavour and aroma potential.

BIANCHETTO TRUFFLE

Harvest Season: middle of JANUARY - middle of APRIL. As its vulgar name “Marzuolo” suggests, from March it reaches its full ripeness conveying its strong and sharp character

Gleba: the internal pulp is initially whitish,tends to become a tawny color and then purplish brown with irregular marked white veins;

Peridium: the external skin is smooth and off-white color;

Aromatic signature: its garlic aroma stands out;

Where it grows: All Italy and especially central Italy, Tuscany, Marche, Lazio,
Umbria, Abruzzo. The main plants that produce this truffle are broad-leaved trees and coniferous, Pine, Beech and Downy Oak.

PRICE:

The price is based on:

  1. type of truffle;
  2. the size of the single truffle, therefore it grows proportionally to the weight of the single piece;
  3. scarcity (depending on the quantity that is found and the weather conditions that will allow or not to go out for the harvest).

This week price list:

BIANCHETTO TRUFFLES

  • truffle size 0-10g: 80£/100g
  • truffle size above 80g: ask for a quotation

WINTER BLACK SUPERIOR TRUFFLE

  • truffle size 0-15g: 100£/100g

You must always keep in mind that being a natural product, you can never be sure of the number of pieces we find for each size, so the sale will always be in quantity. The requested quantity can be made up of several types of pieces to reach the total ordered.

HOW MUCH TRUFFLE YOU NEED?

Approximately an appetizer, pasta or a main course, require the same amount of truffle.

For an optimal enjoyment, in general we recommend a quantity of Bianchetto truffle equal to 20-30g per person for each single dish.

The same for the black truffle. 

Never cook the truffle: enjoy the flavor of your truffle by adding it only at the end of cooking.

HOW TO KEEP IT FRESH

Storage tips: keep in the refrigerator, not at too low temperatures (from 5 ° to 15 °), It is essential that no humidity, mould or freezing are created.

Each piece must be individually wrapped in absorbent kitchen paper. The small pieces can also be wrapped together, in twos or threes and keep it in a small container. 

The absorbent paper must be changed every 24 hours.

The white truffle is at its best for consumption within a week of harvesting.

The black truffle is at its best for consumption within 15 days of harvesting.
