Product Discerptions: The black summer truffle or Tuber Aestivum Vittadini, also known by the name of Scorzone, is a kind of truffle with a very similar appearance to the precious black truffle, but with different aromatic and ripening characteristics. Compared to its renowned cousin, the summer truffle is considered less valuable and is available at significantly lower market prices; however, its scent and flavor can give great satisfaction to even the most demanding palates. These characteristics make it an ideal product for those looking for a versatile, pleasant truffle with a delicate flavor at competitive prices. In cooking, the black summer truffle is mainly used for the preparation of truffle sauces.

First Class:

- Big size over 60g from 30g up

- No major cuts

- Regular in shape or perfectly rounded, solid

- Defined marbling and perceivable aroma.

Appearance: Externally, the Scorzone has many similarities with the precious black truffle, starting from the peridium studded with small pyramidal warts and characterized by rounded and irregular shapes. The differences between the two species are more marked in the internal fleshy part, the gleba, which in the summer truffle has a color ranging from hazelnut to dirty yellow, sometimes with even lighter tones, and is furrowed with whitish veins. The dimensions of the Scorzone are very variable, and can range from five to fifteen centimeters of the largest specimens.


Flavor and aroma: The scent of the summer truffle is less intense than that of the prized black truffle, more delicate and tending to take on fungal aromas. These characteristics make the Scorzone smell very pleasant.

Like the prized black truffle, the summer truffle is also loved for its flavor. The scorzone has a strong but not too intense flavor that vaguely recalls porcini mushrooms. The delicacy and pleasantness of the flavor make it a very versatile ingredient in the kitchen, where it lends itself to multiple combinations. The black summer truffle has that characteristic "gas" flavor much less present, a characteristic that makes it highly appreciated by those who do not like this strong flavor, characteristic of almost all other types of truffles.
