Fresh truffles, Italian truffles
TOSCOBOSCO cominciò il suo viaggio nel 2001 e da allora è rimasta sempre coerente a sé stessa, offrendo soltanto tartufi autoctoni italiani, tartufi che nascono spontaneamente seguendo il corso naturale delle stagioni.
Riceviamo i nostri tartufi freschi ogni giorno dalle mani sapienti dei nostri cavatori di fiducia.
Una volta puliti e selezionati, vengono spediti ai nostri clienti che ricevono sempre il meglio che la natura ogni giorno ci regala.
The world of truffles: species, gastronomic value, and the importance of selection.
It is estimated that more than 70 different truffle species exist worldwide (thirty of them in Europe) each one with a different gastronomic value and with different organoleptic characteristics, but only a few of them are actually edible.
An example of those differences is the existence of the very scented White Truffle Tuber magnatum Pico and the flavorless Chinese truffle Tuber indicum.
It is not easy and not always possible to recognise which is the “odd one out” since the exterior appearance is often similar even between different species. For example, if you find Chinese truffles Tuber indicum and Black Winter Truffles Tuber melanosporum Vitt. together, it is very difficult to identify them because outside they are nearly identical, the bigger and most important difference is in their taste.
That’s why it is very important to have trust in your supplier. Effetre Srl has more than 30 years’ experience in selecting truffles and works exclusively with italian truffles. The company sells only spontaneous wood truffles as it is widely known that they have much more aroma and taste than the cultivated ones.
Effetre Srl guarantees availability of fresh truffles all year round according to the truffles season.
