The Eugenio Brezzi Black Summer Truffle, Tuber Aestivum Vitt., known as scorzone=/i> in Italy, has a distinctive, intensely sweet aroma and nutty flavor. Highly prized in refined French and Italian cuisines, the truffle is one of the world’s finest delicacies!

The truffle’s intoxicating aroma and exquisite flavor led the ancient Greeks to imagine they were created by peals of thunder striking the earth. Truffles are in fact rare tuberous mushrooms that grow underground near trees and are hunted with the assistance of trained dogs and pigs. Harvested from May through December, this truffle grows both in sandy and clay soils, in woods and piney areas, including the wooded areas of Tuscany.

The Italian Black Summer Truffle>/b> has a tough and gritty black skin that helps to preserve this type longer than other truffles. Once cut the flesh becomes yellow. These EUGENIO BREZZI truffles are gleaming and visually stunning in their sealed glass jar.

Delicious in Beef Wellington or sausages, white wine or champagne sauces, pasta, fish and cheese dishes, the summer truffle has a lighter, more delicate flavor than the winter truffle, so it is important not to cook it, but rather gently heat it through or serve it fresh and thinly shaved.

The Brezzi company is a leading producer of truffles in Italy. Beginning in the years following the second World War, Eugenio Brezzi, with the help of his dog, started discovering truffles in the forest. His family business of processing truffles and producing truffle products grew quickly and earned international renown. Today Brezzi continues to bring the prized flavor of the forest into the world’s finest restaurants and gourmet shops, with carefully selected, authentic, all natural products. Naturally preserved, they contain no artificial colorings, preservatives or flavors.
