(Tuber Magnatum Pico)
Available from October to December.
This is undoubtedly the most valuable variety, due to its extremely high organoleptic properties, characteristic flavour, and also because it is a wild truffle that cannot be cultivated. It is characterised by its golden skin, sometimes tending to ochre, and its highly irregular, slightly flattened shape. The internal colour of the flesh ( ‘gleba’) range from pale yellow to hazelnut or brown tones with red freckles, crossed by a close-knit network of very fine white veins. This species is very varied in size, with examples that can even reach sizes of several hundred grams and even exceeding a kilo in weight.
