The Bianchetto Truffle can be purchased fresh during the harvesting period (from January 15th to April 30th), or, alternatively, as a product kept all year round.
Fresh Truffles ● The Bianchetto Truffle, also commonly known as the Marzuolo Truffle is a variety of White Truffle. The Bianchetto Truffle has an irregular globular shape, a smooth peridium, of a dirty white color during the early fruits, and which takes on a darker tone with rusty spots with maturation. Even the gleba is initially whitish, although it then tends to become a tawny color and then purplish brown, with coarse white veins. To the smell, the Bianchetto Truffle is initially soft and when it reaches maximum maturity, it becomes very strong and with a typical perfumed and inebriating note of garlic. The Bianchetto Truffle can be served raw, cut into thin strips on cold foods according to one's taste, or, on hot foods such as Risotto with Butter or Cheese, Chicken Cutlet (stuffed with Bianchetto Truffle and Butter) and with Pancakes or vegetable omelettes. The temperature of the courses favors and maximizes the aroma of the Bianchetto Truffle.
Preserved Truffles ● The Bianchetto Truffle Cream (Tuber Albidum Pico or Tuber Borchii Vitt.) contains 73% of Bianchetto Truffle, Olive Oil and a few grains of Salt. Ideal for flavoring first and second courses, it is also an excellent base for the preparation of aperitifs, focaccias and pizzas. The Bianchetto Truffle Cream also has a fragrant and heady note of garlic.
