Italian Muscat Truffle - Brumale
The Italian Muscat Truffle also known as "Trifola Nera" or Brumale truffle (Tuber brumale vittad.) is a winter truffle that grows with hazels and linden trees, easily to recognize beacause of its strong spicy fragrance.
The skin is smoother than other black truffles with fine warts that are easy to break during brushing and washing so extra care is needed during cleaning. The skin color is dark brown to black. The glebe is firm and solid, depending on maturity starts off with whitish color, maturing to gray-brown and gray-black as the season develops. The main distinguishing characteristic of this truffle are the wide broad veins.
On the nose:
The smell is pleasant and very strong reminding of bitter yeast, fermented fruit, musk, hazelnuts and nuts. Variable depending on maturity.
On the palate
Peppery, reminding of nutmeg and hazelnuts, very strongly flavoured.
Around 15 - 20gm per person.
