Availability

Tuber magnatum pico (white autumn truffles) are scarce as there are very few areas where they can be found and it is not possible to cultivate them.

They are only available for a limited period during the year from the end of September to mid- January.

Quality

Our family has been hunting for over 30 years so we know what makes a great white truffle.

Truffles do not stay fresh for long.. This is why our truffles do not change hands. We unearth the truffles, they are cleaned and then shipped the very same day or the next morning. We sell only the truffles we ourselves have hunted and these are sent directly to our customers, no middle men. In this way, we can ensure that people who love truffles get to enjoy the freshest produce wherever they are in the world..

Storage

The precious white truffles are delicate, they do not have the protective outer layer of the black truffles.  As such,  it is vital that they are treated with special care.

When you receive your truffle, remove it immediately from its packaging, wrap it in a piece of cotton cloth and place it in a glass jar. Close the jar with a lid. Store in the fridge at around 4 C, preferably in the crisper compartment. Change the cloth (or tissue paper) at least once a day to avoid a build-up of moisture.

Truffles are enjoyed as fresh as possible, the longer they are out of the ground, the more they lose their valuable aroma. Eat your truffle within 2 days to enjoy maximum flavour.
