The best guarantee we can offer you is the freshness of our truffles: for this reason, the availability of the product depends on the period of the year. If we sell a truffle it is because a “trifolao” (truffle hunter) together with his loyal “tabui” (truffle dog) has just pulled it out of the ground, by digging it among the roots of a tree. The truffle hunter and his dog are an inseparable team where the experience of the man guides the flair of the dog.
The territory of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato is unmatched: a territory unique in the world, awarded by Unesco as “World Heritage Site”. On our hills, among woods alternating with vineyards, we can find the most precious truffles in the world. We select the best by choosing – as per wine - the most prestigious “cru” and by marketing only high quality products.
Alba Tartufi production chain is very short: we pick them and we select them, you trust us and consume them. If the product is available, considering the seasonality of the truffle, from the moment it is purchased to the moment it is shipped all over the world, it will happen within a few hours. If you don’t find what you are looking for it is because, in that period, the truffle hasn’t been found yet. Book your shipping: you will be able to satisfy your crave as quickly as possible.
