White Truffle EVOO
Truffles are one of the most expensive foods on the planet. The most prized varieties could cost you over £4000 per kilo.
White truffles carry a slightly different taste and aroma. They are often described as having a slight garlicky flavour similar to shallots with a deep musky aroma. The pungent aroma and subtle flavour can turn any traditional dish into a gourmet taste experience.
The white truffle is the most valuable because it's very much affected by the weather and the climate in a given season. That's because white truffles lack an outer shell, leaving them exposed to the elements.
White Truffle is the world’s most prized and sought-after variety. Its availability is so fleeting and demand from top restaurants is so high that there’s precious little to go around. Every gourmet’s favourite, it’s delicate but deeply complex and possesses an intensity that seems to linger indefinitely.
Truffles are a great source of antioxidants, compounds that help fight free radicals and prevent oxidative damage to your cells. Studies show that antioxidants are important to many aspects of your health and may even be linked to a lower risk of chronic conditions, such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes type 2
The white truffle must awaken something primal in those who eat it, because its adherents are many, and they are passionate.
Regarding the White Truffle Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the acidity level is higher than 0.18% and lower than 0.3%. Overripe olives are used to make the oil. If normal olives were used, this strong olive oil flavours will fight with the flavours of White Truffle. Arbequina variety of olives are used and they are picked in December. This variety is fantastic for infused oil as it doesn't have so many flavours.
Our extra virgin olive oil harvest is done at the end of October or beginning of November.
