Welcome in TRUFFLE STORE.
Truffles are underground fungi that have a mycorrhizal relationship with the host tree where they grow. They flourish slightly beneath the surface of the earth, growing on the roots of different trees. The soil, the vegetation, the climate, the seasons and the lunar cycles each year influence the periodic birth of a unique jewel with an inebriating and enveloping scent.
They are expensive because they are difficult to cultivate, hard to find in the wild, incredible to eat and in high demand. There are lots of species, but the two most sought-after are the powerfully flavourful Tuber Magnatum Pico the Italian white truffle, and the Tuber Melanosporum Vitt, the winter black truffle.
Our fresh truffles are harvested in Italy, a country renowned for precious white and black truffle varieties. A knowledge of the territory, close relationships with a network of truffle hunters and years of experience allow us to offer a product with unmistakable appearance, fragrance and taste.
