TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
The Urbani Tartufi Red Pesto & Truffes Sauce is so elegantly and decadently delicious, you’ll want to try using it on everything. Red pesto has a brighter flavor than green, and it truly shows itself here. It’s rich, vivid, with that beautiful umami flavor, and a complexity that can only come from quality truffles.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Use your Urbani Tartufi Red Pesto & Truffles Sauce on anything. Mix it in your scrambled eggs, or dip some breadsticks in it. Warm it up in a pan, and you can spread it on freshly toasted bread, and top it with a fried egg. A classic way to use it is of course, on pasta. Just mix it up with your choice of noodle, and you’re good! You can also use it on homemade pizza, or drizzle it over grilled meats and fish.
A LEGACY OF DELICACY
Constantine Urbani began exporting fresh truffles in 1852, from Italy into France, and this birthed Urbani Tartufi, or Urbani Truffles. The exportation eventually expanded to Germany, Switzerland, and other countries.
His grandson, Carlo Urbani, and his wife Olga, were instrumental in turning Urbani Tartufi into the company it is today. They pioneered the cultivation of truffles in Italy, and placed focus on truffle hunters, and creating an internationally recognized business. This passion for truffles has been passed down to generations of Urbanis, and has cultivated a brand—a company, that has grown to heights Constantine could not have imagined.
The current generation of the Urbani family has put up the Truffle Museum, a Truffle Academy, an Urbani Travel and Tours, and various international branches vital to its continued growth. Their children are now learning and mastering the family business, all born with a love for truffle cultivation, and are poised to continue on the Urbani legacy.
