The black truffle, or Norcia truffle it is collected from December 1st to March 15th. The "peridium" looks like a black warty surface, with small reddish areas if the product is immature. The glebe is black-brown in color with very dense slight whitish veins. The aroma is aromatic, not too pungent, and the flavor is delicate. Widely diffused in the Central Apennines, in Piedmont and in Veneto. It can be grown in suitable land specially reforested with particular tree species. Perfect for a first or second course of freshly grated meat for an original touch of unique taste and flavor.

SIZE: 50 grams.

STORAGE AND USE: The fresh truffle is a product that must be consumed within a few days to savor its taste and aroma in their integrity. After this period of time it is still possible to eat the product, taking into account that it will begin to lose some of its qualities that make it so special. Small speckles of mold are absolutely normal as the truffle is a hypogean mushroom and, like all mushrooms, has a vegetative body represented by a whitish mold. The truffle literally comes from the symbiosis of mold and roots from which they steal nutrients. The truffle needs external cleaning before being used, ideally under cold running water with a brush, so as to free it from any soil residues and small mold stains. To keep it at its best, we recommend storing it in the fridge for about 7 days otherwise it can be safely frozen.

WHERE IS IT: The truffle is a fruit of the earth, an extremely precious and refined underground treasure. Like mushrooms, they arise spontaneously in the soil at a depth ranging from 10 to 60 centimeters in free areas, such as woods or uncultivated land, along the banks of rivers or in controlled areas called truffle huts.”.

COLLECTION: The truffle hunters are those who, with the help of trained dogs, work in the search for truffles. In order to be able to carry out the activity, it is necessary to have a specific authorization issued by the Mountain Communities.e.
