One of the lesser-known truffles is the Brumale truffle (t. brumale vitt.), but it is more than worthy of consideration by truffle lovers. While very similar in external appearance to the Summer Truffle (t. aestivum) and the Burgundy Truffle (t. uncinatum), it is distinguished by a slightly flattened shape, interior flesh of smoky grey-brown color and broad, widely spaced white veins.
The aroma and flavor of this truffle is quite strong and pleasant, reminiscent of the Black Winter Truffle (t. melanosporum), but with a musky, nut-like undertone.
The season for the Brumale Truffle overlaps with the Summer and Burgundy Truffle, but is frequently found later, which allows us to enjoy the flavor of fresh truffles a little longer in the year.
Every truffle fan should give this remarkable truffle a try. We're sure you'll want to add this distinctively different, yet familiar truffle to your repertoire.
Store fresh truffles in the refrigerator submerged in a container of uncooked rice or wrapped loosely in paper towels. Fresh truffles are best when used within a week or less after they arrive.
