Overview

From love for the earth and for its extraordinary products born SIENA TRUFFLES, a small but lovely shop of typical products based on truffles, opened right in the heart of Siena, on the corner of Piazza del Campo, the heart of Tuscany's most charming . After 15 years of passion for truffles, carried out in the forests of central Italy in the company of dogs faithful and well trained, we decided to give a home to what for me was a great passion, but which for many was and is always one of the highest peaks of Italian, so famous all over the world thanks to valuable products such as truffles. From the earth to the table in short, to satisfy the most experienced demanding, from fresh product just found (whether trifola, of scorzone or the prized black) to the various sauces made with truffles, creams, all 'truffle oil until the brandy truffle and traditional pasta, also obviously enhanced by truffle. A series of high-end products, therefore, they can enrich our tables for memorable dinners with friends or business banquets and can represent both unique and original gifts, to be matched to the most famous red wines of Tuscany. All in the name of "Made in Italy", pursued with determination and conviction as a fundamental value.
