This truffle is also known as Black Truffle from Norcia or Black Truffle from Spoleto because it mainly grows in these areas as well as in Umbria in general.The Black Truffle from Norcia grows in hilly and mountainous areas, in forests composed of hazelnuts, oaks, holm oaks, hornbeams and olive trees, where the soil is well lit, drained, calcareous and sometimes rubbly.

The black Winter truffle grows in areas where vegetation is scarce and the grass is sparse under the trees due to dense tangles of filaments that intersect each other.

Product Description

Black winter truffle

The Black Périgord Truffle has a rounded appearance and is quite homogeneous. The peridium or rind has protrusions and warts that make it very rough to the touch and it has a brownish or blackish colour. Specimens that are not perfectly ripe may be also reddish. The gleba, or inner part of that  fungus, is black-violet with whitish veins.

The size may vary significantly and can range from that of a hazelnut (the most common) to that of a large apple (the rarest), reaching even one kilogram in weight in the biggest specimens.
