right vegetable essences. The combination of these three elements is so perfect here that
the Altometaurense area Gives a rich production of truffles of great quality, they may
reach big size, even more than 1Kg. of weight.
In this area you can also find
the praised black truffle (Tuber Melanosporum Vitt), it can be found in periods different
from when you can find the white truffle.
The conditions of the
soil have made this land a very important one for the truffle trade as well as a very
economic activity, in fact many exhibitions and fairies are held in Autumn in many centres
of Altometauro and of Alta Valle del Tevere. In Altometaro the most important exhibition
is the Mostra Mercato del Tartufo held in SantAngelo in Vado.
