Truffle Stories sources directly the finest White Truffles (Tuber magnatum pico) from Piedmont. We personally select all of our truffle hunters in order to guarantee the freshness and the quality of the products as well as the origin. White Truffles must be consumed as soon as possible and preserved in the best possible way. This is why we take extra care to ensure that the product is as fresh as possible and it is packaged in a manner that reduces the loss of flavour to a minimum.

The price of white truffles varies considerably from season to season. In addition to this, during the season, the price can vary from one day to another. Factors that determine the price are availability and demand. In 2015 prices were particular high due to particular adverse weather conditions that caused a general truffle shortage.
