UNCINATO TRUFFLE

-Peridium

Warty, consisting of black warts smaller and less pronounced than Scorzone.

 

-Gleba

Hazelnut colour, crossed by many very branched white veins.

 

-Shape

Round or oval.

 

-Size

It is generally smaller than Scorzone Truffle.

 

-Ripeness

From October to December.

 

-In the kitchen 

The tasty aroma makes it particularly versatile, so it is perfect both raw and baked.

 

-How to recognize it

It is very similar to Scorzone truffle: this is why some scholars consider it an Autumn variety of the same type; the differences -not always easily perceptible, are related to the appearance (peridium, gleba, shape and size), to the perfume and especially to the later ripening period.
