(*) The White Truffle
All truffle species grow in Umbria, but the Gubbio area is particularly known for the highly prized White Truffle (Tuber Magnatum Pico). The White Truffle ripens from October to the end of December, and in some more sheltered areas, it can be found until the end of January. It grows at a greater depth than other truffles and prefers symbiosis with plants such as poplar, willow, harrier, oak, turkey oak, and hornbeam. For size and shape, the white truffle must be regular and rounded. Its unmistakable aroma is best expressed on simple foods without sauces that could cover its flavor.
