  Welcome on Truffle in Tuscany
WHO I AM: “My name is Massimo and I am a truffle hunter
; I was born in 1974 in San Miniato, a small medieval town located in the heart of Tuscany and deservedly listed as one of the undisputed capitals of the White Truffle (Tuer Magnatum Pico). My grandfather, Lino, called “I’ Mencacci”, gave me the love for nature and an intense passion towards this diamond of the land so sought-after and coveted by gourmets from all over the world. It was him, one of the first truffle hunters with capital “T”, to tell me legends, anecdotes, stories about truffle and truffle hunters and now I feel I have to share such a treasure with those who want to discover a tradition otherwise just reserved for few connoisseurs.
I started with friends, we were sitting at the table in front of a delicious dish of tagliolini with truffles and I noticed their surpise, their eyes shining... they looked like children listening to the imaginary adventures of their favorite heroes!
There are no heroes here (apart from the dogs of the truffle hunters), but there is a beautiful and very peculiar tradition that needs to be discovered to fully appreciate His Majesty the King Truffle”.
