The region around Villa Lena with the cities of San Miniato, Montaione, Montespertoli, Volterra and Cartaldo is one of the the most important areas in Italy for truffle hunting. During the truffle festivals over the last three weekends in November, the precious produce of the Tuscan soil becomes gold! Each variety of truffle has its own particular aroma, which is suitable for specific culinary uses – butter, pasta, olive oil, sauces…. Among the numerous varieties the white truffle is seen as the most valuable one, with a market prize of up to 3000 EUR per kilo!
