Truffle Season is here
It’s the time of the year again: truffle hunting. It’s one of the favorite “sports” of Italians who live in the north. Tartufo comes from the Latin word tuber, it is well known since ancient times. Our country is one of the biggest producers and exporters. Some of the most delicious dishes have a few slices of “tartufo” in it. But not everyone is lucky enough to live in the countryside rich in truffles and to know the techniques to find them. So, the Magnifico team is proud to announce that among its brands, from now on there will be “Savini Tartufi”, based in Tuscany, one of the most important landmarks in the world of truffles.
Truffles from Tuscany
Tuscany is where you can find some of the best truffles. Savini has a really long history in this field, it goes back to the 1920s. This year it celebrates an important goal: the centennial anniversary. And we are happy to be able to bring its products directly to your houses in the United States. Hundred years and the values stay pretty much the same they had when everything started: Nature, of course. Because “only where nature is intact truffles grow”. If you have never been in Italy, trust us: Tuscany has plenty of green areas, which are very generous in truffles. Family, another important value, Italians are famous for that. Without respect for tradition, a company like Savini couldn't survive for so many years and truffle hunting couldn't give the “best fruits on the wood” that we have today, and every year.
The Savinis have a passion for Tartufo in their blood
The Savini Family is the story of a family able to transform its passion in a job, a really successful job. In the early 1920s, Giuseppe Savini was a farmer working in a small town in Tuscany. He loved to go truffle hunting, like many others in the Pisa countryside. It was his third child Zelindo who became a real full- time hunter. He bought a grocery with a bar in the richest area of truffle hunters. Luciano, Zelindo's middle son, took care of the bar, becoming an “important point of reference for restaurants and local delicatessen”.
The products: choose one to start, you will end up buying all!
Generation after generation, Savini becomes the name to look for when you want to do the “Tartufo experience”. This company teaches you that there are so many ways to bring it at the table: for lunch, as a season on the pasta or an ingredient in the main course. They also created the chips, or the tartufo hazelnut, when you feel you want a snack. Tartufo is always a chic ingredient for every elegant occasion. Savini for example sells the tartufo cream for the bruschettas, there are so many flavors you will never get tired. You can also buy Savini truffle risotto, Pasta all’uovo with Tartufo, White truffle-flavored extra virgin olive oil dressing. Some ideas for the sides? Look at Dried figs and honey with truffle, Summer-truffle flavored little peaches. To have tartufo on your table is simply a huge upgrade of flavors for you and all your friends. From the Magnifico team: stay safe and keep eating well and healthy!
