IThe Norcia black truffle is one of the most valuable products of Italian gastronomy.
Discovering where the truffle is born and how to hunt for it is a unique experience that enhances your gastronomical culture and enables you to better appreciate the truffle’s aroma and its combination with other foods.
In the months when it is possible to search for black truffles you start on your adventure with a “quarrier” (truffle hunter) and his specially trained dog.
Few people know that there are seven different types of black truffle, each with its own seasonality, peculiarities and value.
Depending on the type of black truffle and the season, the search is oriented towards zones differing in terms of exposure to the sun, altitude and conformation of the ground.
A different experience in the midst of nature. We always recommend wearing shoes suitable for a country walk and it is better to wear trousers rather than shorts.
The duration of the “truffle hunt” depends on the number of people involved, how used they are to country walking, and on weather conditions. Minimum duration = 1.5 hours.
