Staff Pick Notes

If you get the opportunity to eat a fresh white (or black) truffle, it should really be the star of the show in a simple dish that allows the tuber's unique, earthy qualities to shine.

This bottle is a savory delight that really opens up if consumed leisurely alongside rare minute steaks and brown butter toast or egg pasta - of course with shaved truffle crowning the dish!
