The white truffle, scientific name Tuber Magnatum, is considered the truffle par excellence, both for its taste particularly pleasant and exquisite, both for enjoying widespread appreciation on the market. To spore and develop the white truffle needs special terrain and climatic conditions: the soil should be moist and soft for most of the year, to be rich in calcium and with good air circulation. Furthermore, the white truffle tends to develop more close to plants such as linden, poplar and willow; these characteristics mean that not all soils are suitable for its growth and make it be rare and highly desirable. White truffles can be found and collect from October to December, thanks to the infallible nose of the dogs of Tartofaner.
Truffles are very abundant in the upper valley of Metauro and have always been considered the kings of the culinary arts; that is why the places where truffles grow are carefully kept secret by collectors. The history of Longhi Tartufi began in the '60s in Urbania, where Domenico Longhi opened a small truffle industry by capturing the collection of “the tartofaner”. Some of these "jewels" were processed and shipped to big cities such as Rome, Milan and Genoa. The small family business has gradually grown over the years, and it continues to increase thanks to the hard work and dedication of the new generations. Showing great love for the land and indissoluble attachment to tradition, Longhi Tartufi gives special attention to the selection of truffles, to offer consumers high quality products processed according to traditional family recipes.
