Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil With White Truffle Slices
Organic extra virgin olive oil with white truffle slices instantly adds the characteristic flavour and aroma of highly-prized white truffles to grilled meats and pasta dishes. The organic Italian extra virgin olive oil is delicate with notes of wild herbs, and is infused with slivers of organic Alba white truffle.
Drizzle the white truffle oil over a steak to add earthy, savoury flavours. Use the oil to dress a simple pasta dish and garnish with fried sage leaves for quick gourmet supper. The oil is also a luxurious finishing touch for a mushroom risotto.
The limited edition organic extra virgin olive oil with white truffle is Tartuflanghe’s tribute to the regions of Lange and Roero. The whole area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is home to the magnificent wild truffles that make Tartuflanghe’s products so special.
Tartuflanghe was founded in 1980 by Domenica Bertolusso and Beppe Montanaro. They started their careers with a restaurant called ‘Da Beppe’ in Alba, Italy. The restaurant was considered something of a pilgrimage for mushroom and truffle lovers, and their passion for Italian truffles inspired them to create Tartuflanghe. In the beginning, Domenica and Beppe wanted to give people the opportunity to taste truffle even out of season. Over the years, Beppe’s creativity inspired a whole range of truffle products in celebration of the famous tuber.
The company name was Domenica’s idea – ‘tartuf’ from the Italian word for truffle (tartufo), and ‘langhe’ from the Langhe region of Italy where the truffles are found.
