OUR HISTORY

PASSION FOR TRUFFLES SINCE 1987

Our passion for truffle products was born in the splendid Tuscan countryside in 1987. Thanks to the precious traditions handed down from the father, a truffle merchant, and from the mother, cook of aristocratic families, Claudio Savini preserves today the characters of the ancient truffle tradition in the modern business philosophy, immediately making this Savitar’s strength. In San Miniato, in the realm of the white truffle, where Savitar is still based today, we select every day the best truffles for Savitar products processing, or for the sale of fresh truffles. Our products are now available in many countries of the world: in the United States, in Brazil, in Iceland, in Korea, in China, in Thailand, in India, as well as in Europe, enriching the recipes of the most renowned international chefs.

THE TRUFFLES OF SAN MINIATO

Tuscany is one of the main Italian regions for truffle production. The collection mainly concerns the white truffle (Tuber magnatum Pico), the most esteemed, and other species variously widespread in the regional territory, such as the marzuolo truffle (Tuber borchii Vitt.), the scorzone truffle (Tuber aestivum Vitt.), the hooked truffle (Tuber uncinatum Chatin), the prized black truffle (Tuber melanosporum Vitt.) and the black winter truffle (Tuber brumale Vitt.). The White Truffle of San Miniato hills is the finest truffle and it is found, a few centimetres deep, in a limited number of areas favoured by nature. In addition to the fertility of the woods, San Miniato is also renowned for the care and profound respect for the environment with which the harvesting activity takes place. The San Miniato White Truffle sits on the tables of the best restaurants in the world, and Savitar truffle products contribute to enrich the popularity of this ingredient in many countries. The National White Truffle Exhibition in San Miniato, which transforms the city for the entire month of November, has been held in the town for 46 years.
