GOURMET TRUFFLE SELECTION BY MONTE-CHIARO OWNER AND FOOD TEC, ALESSANDRO:

I couldn't resist the temptation to prepare a special box packed with our truffle products, that would allow our wine and truffle lovers to pair Monte Chiaro wines with this special Italian ingredient. My gourmet gift has everything you need to enjoy a grand appetiser, with Truffle Pecorino cheese, or to make our fabulous Pici (homemade pasta) with Parmesan and Truffle Cream, to share golden moments with family and friends.

 

Salty, spicy, crunchy, creamy...in this box you'll find all the savoury staples of an authentic gourmet truffle experience--including our Brunello di Montalcino 2015 and Arteliquida Bianco 2019--for an exquisite combination that's guaranteed to please the most discerning palate.

 

Each shipment contains:

 

Monte Chiaro Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015

Our Brunello is made in collaboration with a gorgeous winery in the northern part of the Montalcino appellation. Intense red in colour with garnet hues, this wine offers classic aromas of violets, roses, red currants, and more subtle notes of coffee and tobacco. It is warm and full-bodied on the palate, with ripe, firm tannins balanced by lively acidity. The flavours unfold into a long, well-rounded finish. It is a fine accompaniment to roast meats, wild fowl, and grilled filet mignon.

"Arteliquida" IGT Toscana Bianco Viognier 2019

Arteliquida Bianco is a great Tuscan white wine, the only one that blends a French vine, Viognier, with Tuscan grapes, Malvasia and Trebbiano, and with the Manzoni Cross (Riesling and Pinot Blanc).

3 Artisanal Monte Chiaro Organic "Pici" Pasta

A newcomer to the Monte Chiaro range, this version of a traditional Sienese speciality lifts the production of Pici (pronounced "peachy"), a chunky type of spaghetti, to an exceptionally high quality. Hand rolled with organic local flour and eggs, our peachy Pici go perfectly with Ragu' or meat sauce, while our Tagliatelle--flat noodle strips, a more famous form of pasta--mix well with pesto or tomato sauce. A packet of 500 g can feed 4-5 people.

Truffle-flavored Risotto 250 g

By using this as a risotto first course you cannot fail to surprise your guests with the elegance of your cuisine. The secret to making this superb dish even more tasty and creamy, we can reveal, lies in preparing it in our own Monte Chiaro way. First, toss the rice in melted butter. Then add homemade meat broth. Finally put in three or four dollops of Gorgonzola cheese, grated almonds, and a sprinkling of Parmesan. A sublime risotto.

Monte Chiaro White Truffle Honey 120 ml

This aromatic acacia honey with white truffle slices enhances the flavour of Pecorino, Parmigiano (Parmesan) and blue cheeses such as Stilton and Gorgonzola. Use it to enrich salty roasts such as chicken with thyme and garlic. Put it on top of duck breast garnished with apple and crushed juniper berries. Drizzle it deliciously over ice cream, dried fruits and other desserts, or use it in a savoury marinade for game birds.

Basil pesto with truffle, jar 90 g

The combination of white truffle and traditional Genoese pesto sauce--basil with garlic, pecorino cheese and pine nuts--is a culinary marriage made in heaven, ideal for infusing into such dishes as linguine, gnocchi or ravioli. Fine Tuscan cooking recognizes its huge debt to the legendary cucina della nonna (grandma's cooking). We borrow one of la nonna's secrets by improving the pesto with a touch of anchovy paste and grated Parmesan.

Parmigiano Reggiano and Truffle Cream, jar 90 g

Parmesan is a tasty DOP (Protected Denomination of Origin) hard granular cheese produced from unpasteurized cow's milk and aged 12-36 months. This delicious cream is the perfect condiment for filled pasta such as gnocchi and spinach gnudi, or for pumpkin risotto. It melts in the mouth as a spread, with sausage and black pepper, on toasted bruschetta.

Black Truffle-flavored Olive Oil dressing, 100 ml

The "Pregiato" black truffle is the most prized of black truffle varieties. It exudes a scent reminiscent of undergrowth, strawberries, wet earth, or dried fruit with a hint of cocoa. Its delicate peppery taste develops fully with gentle heating. This dressing is particularly good with dishes based on potatoes, pasta, pizza, pork fillet and roast meat.

Pecorino with Truffle, intensely rich and ‘truffley’, 500 g

An incredible gourmet composition of sheep's milk and local white truffle by Forme D'Arte to serve with salty Tuscan prosciutto and dried figs. Perfect for dessert with honey and chocolate.

Truffle & Porcini Pasta's Spicy Mix

Based on Aglione, black Truffle, dried Porcini and aromatic herbs. Fry in EVO oil and add Parmesan flakes.

Dolceforte Wildboard Ragout, jar 200 g

The wild boar (cinghiale) was a traditional mainstay of Tuscan cuisine in Renaissance times, now rare to find. Our Rosalia reproduces her grandmother's historic recipe braising the ragu' in a sweet and strong mix of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, black pepper, pine nuts, nutmeg, vinegar and raisins. Add honey to achieve a secret Sienese touch.
