Fresh White Alba Truffles (Tuber magnatum)

White Truffle, or better known White Alba Truffle, is surely the most precious variety of truffle from a economic and culinary point of view. It smells very intense, reminiscent of garlic, but all the more pleasant. Is unmistakably white and yellowish with small white veins. The surface is smooth, ochre or olive-yellow, sometimes also grey-blackish.

In addition to central and northern Italy, the Istrian peninsula in Croatia is the best-known production area. In recent decades, however it has become apparent that it is common in several parts of the Balkans.

Compared to other truffles, it is really an underground fungus, as it usually develops a fruiting body deeper, often at a depth of 10-20 (30) cm.
