It is similar to Precious Black Truffle, from which it is distinguished above all by the greyish gleba tones, the more evident veins and the stronger scent; Moscato Truffle (Tuber brumale Vitt. var. Moschatum De Ferry) is the variety that shows strong musky smell: otherwise is completely identical to Brumale Truffle.
