Magnatum Pico attaches itself to the roots of poplar, willow, hazel and oak, and the hunting season is very short – from October to December. It is also known as a powerful aphrodisiac, and its strong and intense taste seduces all gastronomic connoisseurs and lovers of supreme specialties. The white truffle is a wild mushroom that does not permit a planned cultivation. Seasonal hunting during a very limited autumnal period makes it even more exclusive and sought-after. Its rind (peridium) is smooth and ochre (light brown) or yellowish green. The gleba (fleshy inner mass) has a firm structure, initially whitish, then pale yellow, ochre brown, reddish brown, criss-crossed with many thin white lines. It has an intense aroma and a strong but pleasant taste.
