White truffle

The 'TUBER MAGNATUM PICO' is considered the white truffle par excellence because it is of con-siderable commercial importance.
Known mainly for the Alba area which has made it its flagship, it actually grows in abundance throu-ghout the Piedmont region, especially in Monferrato, Langhe and Roero and in part of the Turin hill.
It has a globular appearance, the external surface is smooth and slightly velvety, its pleasantly aroma-tic flavor different from the other truffles' oil makes it unique.
Lives in conjunction with oaks, limes, poplars and willows.
It can be born in soils with particular conditions, it must be soft and humid most of the year, a good air circulation must be rich in calcium.
The harvest is from September to December.
In Acqui Terme you can find this specialty in many of the restaurants with which our B&B collaborates.
In November, on the occasion of the Acqui & Sapori fair, there is also the truffle fair.
