The White Truffle of Alba is undoubtedly the most valuable in the world and is harvested in the territories of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato. This variety is distinguished by its velvety outer surface and its ochre/pale yellow color. The flesh ranges from milk-colored, to deep pink, to brownish with numerous white and branched veins. The smell is much richer than that of the other varieties and its taste is very persistent, with notes of garlic and cheese.
