Fantastic truffle experience with Vittorio
Michael Schontz
USA
This was a wonderful experience. We were picked up in Florence by Vittorio, our sommelier, and drove to a private farm in San Miniato to search for truffles with Francesca, an experienced hunter and Cioco, her skilled dog. Once we began to hunt on the beautiful estate, Cioco almost immediately found a white winter truffle. As we continued, we found more white truffles and several black truffles. After returning to Francesca's residence, we had a home cooked meal served family style with bruschetta, charcuterie, tomatoes, freshly made pasta, and a citrus custard paired with three of the family's wines. Each course had fresh truffles, with the dessert topped with truffle honey. Every product was procured from the estate. It was easily one of the best meals we had in all of our trip to Italy. After, we went to a local winery and were served three wines with charcuterie. Vittorio showed us the process of wine making and demonstrated how to taste both wine and olive oil as a sommelier would. The whole experience was intimate and we learned far more than other tastings we have been done. Thank you all!
