This crossed my path and I was stunned when I first saw it. I met was introduced to the giant white truffle and I hesitated until I had it in my hand. The perfume was so intense and the shape seemed perfect, the temperature cool in my hands (just right) and touch firm – it was mine. This is one of the best truffles as it was mature and perfect for enjoying.
Buying truffles come down to the “nose” and it takes experience to know what is the right smell for the season. If you pass by Ponzio in Alba, the owner Gianfranco knows top truffles and he has the experience in buying – trust your instincts.
