Truffle hunting

Chef Claudio Savini was born into a historic family of truffle hunters, who used to roam in the woods of Palaia in search of the precious tuber. Claudio has combined his experience with his great knowledge of the area and of the tuber which he inherited from his father and grandfather, along with the technique of his mother Leontina, chef of the estate of the Marquises of Villa Saletta, where she knew how to delight the palates of the most noble European families as well as Italian and foreign industrial bourgeoisie. Therefore, Claudio will be able to accompany you with skill in search of the precious tuber in the splendid Estate of Camugliano, owned by the marquises Niccolini.
