Fresh black winter truffle
Fresh black winter truffle (tuber brumale Vittad.): FIRST CHOICE
The surface of black winter truffle is black and brown with small lumps, while the gleba is dark and has marble veins. The scent is intense and persistent with musky tones, and in the muscat variant, it recalls nutmeg. It can be found in plants such as English oak, oak, downy oak, beech, holm oak, black pine, larch, black and white hornbeam or hazelnut. It is easily confused with the superior black truffle, but it costs half the price. Aroma and flavor: strong and aromatic and easily digestible. We recommend consuming it raw in very thin slices.
