Tasting notes of the Curator

Harvested in the warmth of summer, this truffle, named Scorzone, stands out in the truffle world with its rough, wart-like exterior. The summer truffle offers a harmonious blend of earthiness touched with a hue of hazelnuts, chocolate, and vanilla reminiscent of its Mediterranean roots. Its unique flavor profile intensifies during the peak season in August delivering a piquant punch of aroma and taste. The truffle is unique for its resilience and versatility in culinary applications resulting from its distinctive high average size and the proportion of its lighter gleba crossed by branches of white veins.

Pairings and Suggestions

The Fresh Black Summer Truffle shines amongst a variety of dishes. Consider enhancing traditional sauces by adding truffle into hot, but not boiling, olive oil with a dab of garlic, salt, and pepper. Top your canapés with truffle shavings and incorporate them into your main course meals for the meat course and fish alike. Let the summer truffle be the surprise element in your salad, scattering thin slices for a gourmet touch. We suggest washing and brushing the truffles under the tap just before using them, drying them well with a kitchen cloth or paper towel for optimal flavor delivery.
