Tuscany White Truffle

20 September 2017 by Federica Ghimenti

Tuscany is a land that never ceases to astonish you. In every season you always surprise. Normally you think about autumn is a dry and gray season. Not in Tuscany, starting from the wonderful colors of our hills, this season, in addition to their usual lush greenery, they also take on all the shades of yellow, red and brown. Autumn in Tuscany means wine, oil, chestnuts, mushrooms. A great variety of excellent food products.

San Miniato, about 5 km away from CasaLina & Casalfredo, dedicates to Truffle a whole month of events. Perched on its hill, dominated by the Tower of Federico II of Swabia, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire in the 13th century, San Miniato is a medieval village of great importance in the territory. The town’s historic center has a steady flow of tourism throughout the year, thanks to the fact that it is on the route of the ancient Via Francigena, even more in the autumn during the weekends dedicated to the fairs and the Market Show of the rare White Truffle of Sanminiatesi Hills (Tuber Magnum Pico, this is its scientific name). For 47 years San Miniato offers its visitors to discover with her the mysterious fruits of the earth. The search for truffles is a tradition that is rooted in the night of the times. San Miniato’s truffles have always come out the night, accompanied by their dogs to explore the woods and to find the precious tuber. An inevitable Slow vocation of this territory, which I invite you to visit, but above all to taste.
