From the woods to your table: explore the world of one of the most prized of fungi.
The truffle is a fruit of the earth for connoisseurs. And Italy is one of the world’s leading producers and exporters of the white truffle, the most prestigious, which is found in several regions of the country. Tuscany, in particular, is home to a unique variety, Tuber Magnatum Pico, otherwise known as the Tuscan White Truffle. You can find White Truffle from september to december, during the rest of the year you can taste different types of truffles which they change depending on the seasons. You will join a truffle hunter and his faithful hound to savour a wonderful experience out in the natural world, as you go on a quest for this highly sought-after fungus. Before your woodland adventure begins, you will enjoy a welcome coffee and a fascinating tour of the Savini Museum, which tells the tale of the family behind Savini Tartufi, Italy’s leading truffle company, and how it has progressed from the 1920s to the present day. And what better way to round off your experience than to celebrate the day with an exceptional lunch. Taste some fresh seasonal truffle with Savini Tartufi products, accompanied by a selection of fine wines.
