Fresh black truffles from Umbria and Abruzzo are considered among the best in Europe. These prestigious mushrooms are available from November to February or March. On the other hand, the highly sought-after white truffles from Alba in Piedmont, Italy, are available only in December and January. Both types of truffles are renowned for their unique flavors and aromas, making them a prized ingredient in gourmet cuisine.

Black truffles in Umbria

Prized Umbrian Black Truffles
The prized black truffle of Umbria ( Tuber Melanosporum Vittadini) is the most common variety of the region and is known as the Norcia and Spoleto Truffle, found in the areas of Cascia, Preci, Monteleone di Spoleto, Poggiodomo, Scheggino, Sant'Anatolia di Narco, Vallo di Nera, Cerreto di Spoleto, Sellano, Campello sul Clitunno, Castel Ritaldi, Giano dell'Umbria and Stroncone. They are found in all of the areas that run along the Nera River and, in the Province of Perugia, mainly on Mount Subasio.

They thrive in clayey-limestone earth and live in symbiosis with oak, holm-oak, beech and chestnut trees. Its size varies from that of a walnut to that of an apple. Round, often irregular in shape, it has a rough but not spiky exterior. Its aroma is unforgettable, the pulp a dark red-black with thin white veins.
