Truffle in San Miniato

Truffle in San Miniato

San Miniato, a town rich in art and history, holds among its many riches a precious product of the land: the white truffle of the Hills of the Place.
This Truffle, considered as “the King’s Food”, can only be found in restricted areas and favoured by nature.

Great merits go to the area for the high quality of the truffles collected thanks to the perfect maintenance of the environments and their fertility. In Addition, there are regulations and detailed rules for the collection and trade of truffles in San Miniato.

A great merit of San Miniato regarding the Truffle is the primacy of “finding the greatest truffle”. The Prize was awarded thanks to the finding of a 2,520 gram truffle donated to the American President Truman in 1954.
