The city of Alba is located in the heart of Langhe - the hilly southern part of the north-western region of Piedmont in Italy. Alba is known all over the country and beyond for its white truffles - a noble species of valuable mushroom that grows underground.

Truffles grow at a depth of 5 to 20 cm near the roots of trees. They have a specific smell, which can be smelled for a limited period of time. Often, this smell can be found by well-trained dogs and experienced mushroom-“hunters”.
