IThe Truffle, whose scientific name is Tuber Melanosporum, is an underground mushroom that grows along with the roots of various types of trees.
The Black Truffle is one of the most used truffles, highly appreciated for its unique flavour, characteristic scent and its versatility in the kitchen.

It is harvested, or rather "quarried" between November 15th to March 15th, which makes it the undisputed star of winter recipes.

Like the other varieties of truffles, the Nero Pregiato is composed of an external peel, called peridium, and an internal pulp, called gleb.

Morphological details:

  • Shape
    Roundish, rather regular
  • Dimensions
    They can be irregular, varying in size ranging from a hazelnut to the size of a large potato.
  • The peridium
    Black and wrinkled, dotted with small dark warts (hence the name Melanosporum).
  • The gleba
    Purplish black in colour, furrowed by thin light veins, taking on red tones when exposed to air.
  • Scent
    Delicate and pleasant, never too intense.
  • Taste
    It is very particular, almost sweetish, which is why the Nero Pregiato Often becomes called "sweet truffle".
