Tuber Albidum Pico o Tuber Borchi Vitt.
Tuber Albidum Pico or Tuber Borchii Vitt., commonly called Tartufo Bianchetto, is a variety of white truffle, less prized and therefore less expensive than the classic white truffle.
It is found at sea level, typically in symbiosis with stone pine and maritime pine. It can be found in good quantities in oak forests with a temperate climate, sometimes even exceeding 1,000 metres in altitude.
The harvest calendar in the Tuscany region opens on 10 January and ends on 30 April.
Popularly known also with the term Marzuolo Truffle, because it is in March that sees its complete maturation.
The Bianchetto Truffle can be used grated fresh, or cut into chunks using the classic truffle slicer.
It can accompany both meat dishes and rich appetizers, such as bruschetta with butter and pepper.
It should not be cooked.
It has a strong aroma and it’s a little spicy, but in some preparations can represent a valid and above all economic alternative to the better known brother, more prestigious and above all more expensive.
