Fresh uncinatum black truffle
Fresh uncinatum black truffle (tuber uncinatum Chatin): FIRST CHOICE
The Uncinatum truffle is the typical autumn truffle: it is a very popular variety of truffle because it is characterized by a very attractive price and an aroma and perfume that is able to characterize the individual dishes in which it is used. Some compare it to the Black Summer Truffle (called Scorzone), but the Uncinatum Truffle has a decidedly more intense aroma. The size of the Uncinatum Truffle can range from that of a hazelnut to that of an orange and beyond and can even reach 700 grams in weight. Just like its summer namesake, the fresh hooked truffle has a warty outer rind (hence the name of Scorzone) but of a very dark, gray or black color. The color of the gleba (truffle pulp) ranges from shades of hazelnut to brown, with light and very branched veins. The differences between Scorzone Estivo and Scorzone Invernale are not many, but the latter has a more pronounced odor in consideration of the particularly humid soils in which it is located, which retain the well-defined smell of the woods and vegetation that welcome it.
This truffle is excellent for preparing delicious first courses or for making excellent meat escalopes. Also ideal for preparing excellent croutons. To best enhance this truffle we recommend cooking it lightly. Just put it in a pan (sliced or julienne) for a few minutes over low heat, along with the other ingredients.
Harvesting period in the Marche region: last Sunday September – December 31

The black uncinatum truffle is kept in the refrigerator wrapped in kitchen paper such as Scottex (it is advisable to change it every day as soon as it becomes damp) and placed in a plastic or glass container (we recommend the removal of fresh truffles from the insulated container with which we ship). The storage time in the refrigerator varies from 8 to 12 days.
We brush our fresh truffle eliminating only the most consistent layer of soil that surrounds it; this is because the earth residues create a layer of protection for the truffle, which allows it to preserve its aroma. The truffle must therefore be washed carefully with a brush under running water only when it is actually used. Finally, the truffle must be cut into very thin slices with the special truffle slicer; it is preferable to use cooked black uncinatum truffle, sautéed in a pan, to release all its flavor and aroma. Add more slices of raw truffle on top of the hot dish as desired. The black uncinatum truffle is excellent for preparing delicious first courses or for making excellent meat escalopes. Also ideal for preparing excellent croutons. You can use the uncinatum black truffle to season a pasta dish (see our truffle pasta) or to make an excellent omelette. Finally, don’t forget to add the sauce par excellence to pasta or meat: our truffle butter.
