Truffle lovers and not both know that Tuscany is one of the Italian regions most renowned about truffles. Forests of Tuscany are a wealth of truffles and among the rolling hills of our region, besides the king of truffles - white truffle – truffle hunters together with their faithful allies find many other varieties: black truffle, bianchetto truffle, summer truffle and uncinatum truffle. The most famous truffle areas are definitely: Mugello, Casentino, San Giovanni d’Asso, Maremma Grossetana, Valtiberina and obviously San Miniato and Castelfiorentino.

San Miniato is certainly the most internationally renowned among them. Not by chance, San Miniato is also called "the city of truffle” and white truffle of San Miniato is very popular all around the world. It is precisely in San Miniato that every year during the last 3 weekends of November takes place one of the most important truffle fairs attracting truffle lovers from everywhere. Several truffle fairs, lesser known but equally important, are held close to San Miniato: Montaione in October, Montespertoli and Certaldo in March. Also the forests of this area are widely prolific in truffles growth. Selektia Tartufi is based in these areas and more specifically in Castelfiorentino not by chance. Thanks to the close ties that Simone Calugi from Selektia Tartufi settled with local truffle hunters, Selektia Tartufi has quickly become a strong point of reference for truffle in Castelfiorentino, Italy and more.
