Fresh truffle seasons

that lc truffes offers
Since 2003, LC TRUFFES has been committed to a permanent and rigorous selection process for all its truffle varieties. Ethics, passion, know-how and high standards are our watchwords.

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

Will the quantities be there? Good or bad year? What will be the quality? Will the weekly prices (Truffe Noire and Truffe Blanche d'Alba) be in line with the truffles of the moment?

So many questions before each season and during this one.
Will I again have in my hands this truffle that transcends me by its fragrance, its subtle aromas, their difference, both true sanctuaries of mystery, I'm talking about the two most prestigious!

A hypogeous mushroom with many facets

There are 180 species of truffle in the world. Not all truffles are edible, and not all that are edible have the same olfactory or gustatory interest, or the same market value, even though they may be black or white.

So a white summer truffle or Burgundy truffle is not a black truffle, nor is a bianchetto or terfes a white Alba truffle.

In order to differentiate between them, each with its own specific characteristics (peridium, gleba, taste, fragrance, etc.), they are given a scientific name Tuber (Latin name), followed by the name of the species and the common name.

A dozen or so truffles are marketed, not all of which are listed above, with a well-defined harvesting period based on prefectoral decrees. It should be noted that the Italian Carabinieri, particularly with regard to Tuber Magnatum, are very strict about the period during which truffles can be dug. Each region of Italy has its own opening date, and failure to respect it can result in heavy fines.
