  Truffle forests in the high mountains of Umbria
Truffles are one of the most expensive gastronomic specialties in the world. Umbria is one vast truffle field and it produces different types of truffles: the black truffle, the summer truffle (Tuber aestivum), and the fragrant white truffle. The predominant type is the Umbrian black truffle from Norcia and Spoleto (Tuber Melanosporum Vittadini). It matures from November to March and differentiates itself from other types of truffles by accentuating its flavor when it is boiled. The white truffle is still rarer and more valuable. The truffles found in the forests of the Marche, the white as well as the black ones, have an excellent quality and a very intensive flavor. A few companies use the small truffles to produce truffle cream, butter, and oil with truffle flavor, mixed creams with mushrooms, olives and truffles, boxes with finely sliced summer truffles, and cheese fondues with truffles.
