Intense and decisive flavour
The Uncinatum truffle is very similar to the summer truffle, so much so that some scholars consider it almost a variant of the Aestivum.
The gleba is darker than that of the black summer truffle, almost chocolate-colored in mature specimens.
The surface is wrinkled and, curiously, owes its name to the hook-shaped ridges present in the spores.
