Angellozzi Tartuficoltura has chosen to produce the three most appreciated truffle varieties:
THE MOST PRECIOUS TRUFFLE
The white truffle variety has smooth yellow ochre or olive yellow skin. The pulp is pale brown with white veins.
The shape is related to the nature of the soil. It is smooth and can also be very round. This truffle ripens from October to December, has a particularly strong smell, slightly garlicky with very intense flavour.
THE MOST SOUGHT-AFTER TRUFFLE
The winter black truffle variety ripens from December to late March. Its peridium (skin) is warty, matte black, and warts are not very prominent. The shape is depressed at the top, and the colour is reddish at the base.
The pulp is purple-black crossed by numerous thin white veins that become black after sterilisation
THE MOST ACCESSIBLE TRUFFLE
The summer black truffle is a variety harvested from late May through December, easily recognizable by the coarsely warty glossy black skin. The pulp is dark brown with numerous thin white streaks, which disappear during the sterilisation process.
