We created 3 white truffle reserves to protect it from its exsinction.
In fact, the over-utilization and exploitation of its natural habitat (the wood) can bring to the exstinction of white truffles.
We train and sell dogs and puppies that are trained to the research of white truffles.
We decide to give priority to the project of valorisation of thypical products investing precious resources in the coltivation of fine black truffle, dhoney, wine and oil, that are all thypical Tuscan products.
The oil is cold-pressed with the ancient method of millstones that allowe to maintain a special taste and flavour.
