Urbani Tartufi Whole Black Winter Truffles in Jars

Preserved Wintertime Elegance

The pride of P√©rig¬≠ord may only be avail¬≠able fresh for a short time each year, but Urbani Tartu¬≠fi has found a way for you to sam¬≠ple them year-round. Comes in an ele¬≠gant jar, per¬≠fect for to give as a gift or to col¬≠lect for yourself. 

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The P√©rig¬≠ord black win¬≠ter truf¬≠fle is known for its black exte¬≠ri¬≠or and dark inte¬≠ri¬≠or with del¬≠i¬≠cate white vein¬≠ing. It has an intense aro¬≠ma and taste, an earth¬≠i¬≠ness with a touch of dried fruit and a long-last¬≠ing, mem¬≠o¬≠rable after¬≠taste. Urbani Tartu¬≠fi pre¬≠serves whole truf¬≠fles in beau¬≠ti¬≠ful glass jars, sus¬≠pend¬≠ed in a truf¬≠fle juice made from water, salt, and small truf¬≠fle bits that fall off dur¬≠ing ster¬≠il¬≠iza¬≠tion. This way, their aro¬≠ma and taste are as close to their fresh state as possible.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Use these truf¬≠fles as you would their fresh coun¬≠ter¬≠parts. Take one out of the jar and shake off the excess juice before shav¬≠ing sliv¬≠ers off with a small knife, peel¬≠er or‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČthe pre¬≠ferred way‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČwith a truf¬≠fle shaver. You need only a small por¬≠tion to impart the truffle‚Äôs sig¬≠na¬≠ture fla¬≠vor to any dish, only about 10 grams of truf¬≠fle per person.

Black truf¬≠fles go well with rice, egg, and pota¬≠to dish¬≠es, or sliced over soups and fresh-made sauces. Shave them straight over canap√©s, fish, or chick¬≠en or insert pieces under the skin of poul¬≠try about to roast in the oven. Your wine pair¬≠ing choic¬≠es will depend on the dish¬≠es you serve, but Rhineland whites or a Pinot Noir with smooth tan¬≠nins are some first-rate recommendations!

DEL­I­CATE CONSERVATION

Pre¬≠serv¬≠ing truf¬≠fles is con¬≠sid¬≠ered an art. The first to dis¬≠cov¬≠er an appro¬≠pri¬≠ate con¬≠ser¬≠va¬≠tion tech¬≠nique was Mai¬≠son Hen¬≠ras, using glass jars sealed with wax. Clean¬≠ing is the first and fore¬≠most part of any truf¬≠fle pre¬≠serv¬≠ing process. These beau¬≠ties are both rare and expen¬≠sive, so sell¬≠ers always wish to present them at their absolute best. They are her¬≠met¬≠i¬≠cal¬≠ly sealed in glass jars and gen¬≠er¬≠al¬≠ly kept at a tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture between 2 and 4¬įC. Whole truf¬≠fles tend to keep their aro¬≠mas and fla¬≠vors much bet¬≠ter than peel¬≠ings or chopped pieces.

Storage Instructions

You can keep your sealed glass jar in a cool, dry place for up to 2 years. After open¬≠ing, store it in the refrig¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tor and use with¬≠in 1 to 2 weeks. For best taste, of course, use your truf¬≠fles imme¬≠di¬≠ate¬≠ly after open¬≠ing the jar. Best before date of cur¬≠rent batch: 2022
