Excursion in search of truffles

tartufo-in-mano

We have been truffle hunter for three generations: first the great-grandfather Egidio, who was one of the most important trifolai in the area, then his grandfather Remigio and finally Franco, who still carries on the family tradition.
In the months of September and October it is possible to organize excursions in search of the White Truffle.
