The Ucinato truffle, named Tuber aestivum var. Uncinatum Chatin is a truffle similar to scorzone and there are still conflicting views about the membership of the species Aestivum; for some it is a distinct species systematically of a different variety, however others argue that the different environment allows it to ripen late.ÂÂ
It has a glebe darker than the Tuber aestivum, almost chocolate brown in mature specimens, and a peridium with warts well-defined.
The collection in Abruzzo occurs mainly in cool areas with constant moisture throughout the year like the beech and can not withstand the summer drought and likes exposures with half shade and higher altitude. It is found mostly in protected areas away from direct sunlight such as deep valleys and slopes facing north.
It matures in autumn, from October to December, in deciduous forests, especially beech and oak, on land or predominantly clay-rich humus.
The harvest time is from October 1 to March 15.
NOTE: Truffles will be sold brushed and unwashed, to maintain greater durability.
The nose is a very sensitive ingredient. E 'can store it in a cool place and for a short period (maximum 7-10 days) wrapped in a breathable gauze and closed in a glass jar.
Before enjoying truffles make sure you clean it from all traces of soil, rinsing it moderately and employing a brush or a brush to semi-hard bristles.
