March is for Marzuolo
A full month (10 March- 9April) dedicated to the Marzuolo Truffle
March smells like truffles in San Giovanni d'Asso which hosts the Marzuolo Truffle Market-Fair, "Marzo Marzuolo,". The whole month is dedicated to lovers of this precious tuber - a jewel of a truffle set between the biancane and calanchi truffles - who will have the chance to taste it paired with the typical flavours of the Crete Senesi region.
Tastings will be possible throughout the month (truffle and chocolate with Vinsanto Saturday 10 March, truffle and Spumante on Sunday 18 March, Truffle and Orcia DOC and white wines on Sunsay 11 and 25 March. Reservation required), as well as the opportunity to partake in truffle hunts in the surrounding countryside. Restaurants will offer dishes with fresh marzuolo truffle, and restaurants in San Giovanni d'Asso and Montisi will offer truffle-themed menus on three consecutive week-ends.
And the end on 7 and 9 April the “Easter Eco Trail”.
