Summer Truffle (Tuber aestivum Vitt)
It is also called ”scorzone” and it can reach remarkable dimensions with characteristics similar to the black truffle. Its external part shows dark pyramid warts and it has an aromatic and intense scent. It distinguishes itself from the Tartufo Nero Pregiato (Fine Black Truffle) because of its smell at the time of the cut and because of its hazel-colored soil. It ripens from May to August.
