The summer black truffle (Tuber aestivum Vitt.) also known as the "scorzone" truffle

giulio the truffle hunter

Ripening period:  from June to November

How to recognize it:
for its rough, warty peridium - from which the name of  "scorzone" , also meaning rough in Italian, comes - the lighter gleba than the other varieties of "black truffles", its generally large sizes and most of all, the ripening period which is largely in summer.

The summer black truffle in the kitchen:
as it has a delicate aroma, it is used as a base for preparations with other ingredients
