The seasons of fresh truffles

that the truffles offer
LC TRUFFES has been committed since 2003 to a permanent and rigorous selection for all varieties of truffles. Ethics, passion, know-how, requirement are its key words.

No two seasons are alike...
Climate change or/and other parameters make our reference points change.

Will the quantities be present ? good or bad year ? What will be its quality? Will the weekly courses (Black Truffle and White Truffle of Alba) be in adequacy with the truffles of the moment?

So many questions before each season and during this one.
Will I have again in my hands this truffle which transcends me by its perfume, its subtle aromas, their difference, both true sanctuary of mystery, I speak indeed about the two most prestigious!

A hypogeous mushroom with many facets

180 species of truffles are listed in the world. Not all of them are edible and those that are are not all interesting in terms of smell, taste and market value even though they are black or white.

Thus a white summer truffle or Burgundy truffle is not a black truffle and a bianchetto or terfes is not a white Alba truffle either.

In order to differentiate them, each one of them having its specificities and characteristics (peridium, gleba, taste, perfume...) they were given a scientific name Tuber (Latin name) followed by the name of the species as well as the usual name.

About ten truffles are marketed, not all of them are mentioned above, with a well-defined harvesting period: prefectoral decrees. It should be noted that the Italian Carabinieri, especially with regard to the Tuber Magnatum, are very strict about the period of cavage of this one, each region of Italy has an opening date, not respecting this one is to incur strong fines.
