Black Summer Truffles

WHAT ARE BLACK SUMMER TRUFFLES?

Native to Italy, the tuber aestivum is a black summer truffle that grows from May to September in the woodlands of the Piemonte, Emilia-Romagna, Marche, Umbria, Lazio, Abruzzo, Campania, and Molise regions. Widely known by the name of scorzone, these black tubers are milder than their winter cousins, making them perfect for adding an exquisite touch to many summer dishes.

MEET URBANI

While Americans only became savvy to the fragrant and flavorful fresh black truffle a few decades ago, the Urbani family had already been renowned truffle hunters for over a century. The story of Urbani Truffles starts with Constantine Urbani in 1852 when he began exporting fresh truffles from Italy to France, which ultimately created the Urbani business: passed down for generations, and growing all the while.

Urbani’s summer truffle oils are infused with real truffle for a delicate, refined flavor that won’t diminish over time the way that other brands do. Their summer truffles are harvested from Piemonte, Emilia Romagna, Marche, Umbria, Lazio, Abruzzo, Campania, and Molise.

THE PERFECT PAIRING: URBANI TRUFFLES & PARMIGIANO REGGIANO DOP

We believe this producer needs no introduction (but on the other hand, we love talking about cheese). With its distinctive dotted rind, Parmigiano Reggiano DOP is unimpeachably authentic: it is made with three natural ingredients using a centuries-old process, in a geographical area of Italy both carefully defined and highly regulated.

IL METODO CA' DEL BOSCO

At Ca' Del Bosco, they believe that attention to every detail is crucial, which is why they created Il Metodo Ca' Del Bosco, or, the Ca' Del Bosco Method. Through the use of controlled environments, cutting-edge technology, and innovative design, this company has achieved the status of a world-renowned winemaker. As soon as the grapes are picked, using special cases, they are graded and chilled. Each bunch is hand-selected by experienced eyes before being cosseted at their "berry spa”, an exclusive air-bubble bunch-washing system that incorporates three soaking vats. The philosophy behind this process is simple: cleaner the grapes, the purer the wine. Finally, the crushing, which is done in an oxygen-free environment, is followed by fermentation in small oak barrels or vats.
