The Savini family has always been involved in the truffle business in Tuscany, a passion that has been handed down for four generations since the early 1920s. Even today, as then, we collect the fresh truffles of the season and give life to a complete processing cycle that we follow directly: from harvesting to selection, from cleaning to processing, and from packaging to delivery. In Tuscany it is possible to find truffles all year round, from the precious black truffle to the black Scorzone winter truffle, from the Bianchetto truffle to the black Scorzone summer truffle and on to the White Truffle par excellence, the “Tuber magnatum Pico.”
The Savinis and their truffle hunters cover, almost every day, the area within the provinces of Pisa, Florence, and Siena (Palaia, San Miniato, and Volterra), in the heart of Tuscany, and this provides the guarantee that the product retains high quality and a secure source.
The year 2007 was an overwhelming year for Savini Tartufi, full of emotions and indescribable satisfaction for those who love truffles as much as the Savinis do and dedicate every day of their life to it. A story that ended with one feat that will remain in the history of truffles: at the end of November in the hills of Palaia, Pisa, the Savinis discovered, thanks to the dog Rocco, the giant white truffle weighing 1.497 kg, which was auctioned off on December 1 at the charity event “Asta Internazionale del Tartufo di Toscana,” breaking the World Record for biggest truffle and for highest price ever paid for a white truffle—330,000 dollars.
