Fresh superior white truffle
Fresh superior white truffle (Tuber magnatum Pico): FIRST CHOICE
The white truffle is the truffle par excellence, its scent will inebriate your dishes. It is born and grows only in Piedmont, in Marche or Tuscany region, where it takes the name of Alba and Acqualagna truffles (these are the only 2 denomination of origin recognized in Italy and in the world). The appearance is globular, more or less round in shape but with irregularities on the peridium (cavities and protrusions); the surface is slightly velvety. The color varies from cream to ocher and remains constant even when fully ripe. The gleba is white and greyish-yellow marbled with white veins. The aroma and flavor is extremely strong and aromatic, referring to the smell of parmesan cheese; the best way to enjoy it is over egg (with any type of cooking), with egg pasta or over white meats.
Harvest period in the Marche region: last Sunday September – December 31

The superior white 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 5 to 7 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. Cut thin slices (with the special truffle slicer) over the hot dish (see also our truffle pasta) and the heat will release all its flavor.
