This white truffle product is remarkable for its intense flavour and the ability of giving its dishes a full and unmistakable taste, even in small doses. The aromatic substances of truffles have a stimulating effect on digestion. Truffle is the most precious ingredient of Emilia Romagna’s typical cuisine: its taste is enhanced when combined with tagliatelle pasta and or simply plain with eggs.
