Orlandi - Fresh Summer Scorzone Truffle

This summer truffle is mainly recognizable by its black, rough, warted surface. The warts are almost like pyramids and the gleba has a yellow-brownish colouring with numerous light veins The quality of the black summer truffle is very good even though it does not attain the aroma of the authentic black truffle. Due to its relatively good availability and to the similarity in taste with traditional mushrooms, its price is well below that of the authentic black truffle. Thanks to its relatively thick skin, it is much more resistant to the humidity loss.
