Tuber Aestivum Vittadini 

Black Summer Truffles have a delicate flavour and aroma. They are the mildest flavoured truffles of the year, with overtones of earthiness, chocolate, hazelnuts and vanilla. The season usually begins in April, when the flavour is mild, but it develops as the season progresses. 

If you like an intense truffle experience, then use summer truffles in conjunction with some of our preserved truffle products to strengthen the flavour. Try some of our truffle butter, or truffle infused olive oil. Ideal!

Please note that to ensure freshness, we like to receive our truffles fresh to order, so next day delivery may not be possible and it is likely to be next but one.



Tuber Aestivum Vittadini

With a crop yield across Europe of 105 tons, this is the bulk deliverer among black truffles. As its summery name implies, it is grubbed up out of the earth during the hot part of the year, revealing a black surface masking a yellowish beige interior.
It is Europe’s most widely distributed type of truffle, found mainly in Spain, France and Italy. 
Caspian Caviar truffles are selected from the best Italian regions. To ensure freshness, we like to receive fresh to order, so next day delivery may not be possible and it is likely to be next but one.
Delivery Details
We offer a range of delivery options, which are listed on the order page. All UK caviar orders are sent out on a next day basis, excluding Sundays and Bank Holidays, on a fully trackable service. We need your order by 2.00pm if we are to deliver the following day. Your order will be packed with ice and delivered in thermo-dynamic packaging to ensure that it arrives with you in perfect condition.
Our system allows you to select your required delivery day, up to two months in advance.
We despatch using Parcel Force for deliveries in the UK. It is a "sign for" service so please ensure that there is somebody home on the day of delivery. On despatch, you will receive confirmation, along with the Parcel Force tracking number. Most areas now have "Live Tracking" which provides an estimated time of delivery, which can help to ensure that somebody is at home.
For specialist delivery options, such as same day delivery, a specific time or within 90 minutes in central London, please phone the office.
However hard we try, things can go wrong with a delivery. This will result from things beyond our control, such as van breakdowns, severe weather or road closures. In the event of non arrival, please contact the Home Deliveries team on 0845 606 8868 as soon as possible. We will do whatever we can to get your parcel delivered, but our success will rely on an early warning. Having been doing this for over 18 years, we do know how best to work the systems.
