The summer black truffle is a variety harvested from late May through December, easily recognizable by the coarsely warty glossy black skin. The pulp is dark brown with numerous thin white streaks, which disappear during the sterilisation process.
Whole truffles with very rounded shape, which show no external alteration. The pulp is steadily mature, hazel colour.
This selection is composed of considerably round truffles with regular shape, which can have defects on their peridium such as cuts or abrasions. It differs from the Extra Selection only in appearance, not in quality.
Truffles broken during harvesting, washing, or properly cut, are included in this category. Their pulp, as for the other categories, has no maturation defects.
