Sabatino Tartufi: A Family Story
In the heart of Umbria, Italy, a region of woods and hills, the land offers one of the most mysterious and precious foods: Truffles. Truffles are underground fungi known as the "diamonds of the earth" and today, thanks to Sabatino Tartufi, anyone can get a little piece of treasure on their plate.
An Italian Family
Sabatino Tartufi was founded in 1911 when Sabatino Balestra and his wife Giuseppina opened their first store in Umbria, Italy and began the distribution of specialty food products. As fate will have it, their very own lands began to fruit truffles. Overwhelmed with passion for these unique gems of the kitchen, they started to hunt for truffles and develop high quality truffle products for all of their customers to enjoy.
"The truffle is not just a food, but an experience; and we would love for everyone to be able to experience truffles".
- Federico Balestra, CEO
The Treasure Of The Forest
