We are really excited to be able to offer you exceptional quality, fresh truffles from our long-time truffle supplier in Acqualagna, Italy.

The ultimate truffle, the 'Tuber Magnatum Pico' or 'fine white truffle' can be found in very few places in the world. Acqualagna, the capital of fresh truffles in the Marche region of Italy is one of those places. Our suppliers there, Acqualagna Tartufi are able to send these prestigious white truffles within 24 hours of your order, preserving their exquisite scent and taste. 

The season for Acqualagna white truffles is short. Available from only October to December and in high demand, Acqualagna white truffles should be enjoyed raw to savour their intense flavour and aroma. Shave them as thinly as possible on to pasta or risotto and turn your dish into something truly spectacular.

Once you cut the truffle in half it gives off the most amazing aroma which is unlike anything else.

This is a very durable truffle which is edible up to 5 days after purchase. The best way to keep fresh it is to wrap the truffle in kitchen roll and store it in the fridge in a closed glass jar ensuring that the paper is changed every day. The truffle should be washed just before consumption by placing it under slow running cold water and gently cleaning with a toothbrush.

You can enjoy the White Truffle both raw or cooked as an ingredient in many recipes.

All fresh truffle orders are shipped in special refrigerated packaging, designed to ensure that truffles arrive in optimal condition. Your truffles will be delivered to you 48 hours after you place your order (Tuesday to Saturday only).

Our Producer – Acqualagna Tartufi

Unless you are a serious foodie, you've probably never heard of Acqualagna. It is a small town of just over 4,000 inhabitants in the region of Marche. A beautiful national forest surrounds the town and in the hills nearby are protected truffle hunting grounds.

Licensed truffle hunters and their dogs work in the wood, searching for of the elusive Tuber Magnatum Pico - the cherished wild, white truffle. These truffles, when the weather and conditions are just right, grow 10 to 12 inches underground in humid environments and mature in the autumn.

Acqualagna is the only place in the world where you can find any type of truffle and three important fairs are held in this small city in correspondence to the harvest periods of the different product varieties.

Our partner in Acqualagna is Acqualagna Tartufi, a truffle company with over 30 years’ experience who harvest a range of different types of truffles, some of which have grown in organically certified ground.

Acqualagna Tartufi pride themselves on their use of old techniques passed down from father to son. Their truffle delicacies are created using traditional recipes without artificial colours or preservatives.
