Tuber Melanosporum, better known as the black winter truffle, is reputed throughout the world. More or less round in shape, the outer skin is black and brown in color and is covered in diamond shaped pyramids. The inside is a beautiful black with a hint of purple with distinctive white marbling. This truffle owes its fame to the complexity of its flavor, the perfume may range from wet mushroom, hazelnut, chocolate to alcohol. Black winter truffles are available and in season from December to March (Northern Hemisphere) and from June to August (Southern Hemisphere).
