Savini Tartufi

Savini Tartufi

The launch of the Savini family into the world of truffles began in the Twenties, when Giuseppe Savini, married Luisa Balestri. The father of four, Vittorio, Argantina, Zelindo and Savino, lived in Balconevisi, a village on the Tuscan hills not far from San Miniato, had a passion for truffle hunting with his faithful dog.

A favourable area for growing valuable white truffles (which were not so popular back then), where the local vegetation, climate and expanses of hilly areas, which make the Era Valley one of the greenest and freshest in Tuscany, produces truly excellent truffles!

As so often happens, Giuseppe's passion was handed down to his sons who, as they grew, began to go truffle foarging with their father.
