Tartufi d’Abruzzo, or Abruzzo truffles, are a prized delicacy found in the Abruzzo region of Italy. These truffles are mainly found in the towns of Civitella Casanova, Bussi sul Tirino, and Villa Santa Maria, among others. The history of truffle hunting in Abruzzo dates back centuries, with the region being known for its high-quality truffles.

One popular recipe using Abruzzo truffles is Tagliatelle al Tartufo, a simple yet luxurious dish that highlights the earthy flavor of the truffles. Another popular recipe is Crostini al Tartufo, which features thinly sliced truffles on top of toasted bread, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt.

Abruzzo truffles have been recognized with the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status, ensuring that only truffles from this region can be labeled as such. This recognition also includes specific specifications for the truffles, such as their size, aroma, and flavor.
