Fall’s colours and flavours: the white truffle of Crete Senesi
The white truffle of the Crete Senesi (tuber magnatum Pico) is considered one of the finest in Italy.
Its excellent quality it is due by the special environment of the Crete Senesi, this is an area with not factories, far from the largest motorway, no pollution, 30% of the landscape is still wood, all this factor plus the climate make the Crete Senese a perfect base for the truffle.
Fall is the ideal season for the finest truffle which has a white colour and to celebrate it on mid of November in San Giovanni d’Asso there will be a festival dedicated to the truffle with special events, such as a degustation of Champagne or Brunello wine and truffles.
