The truffle in Calabria is found and collected mainly in the province of Cosenza, between the Pollino massif (therefore also in Basilicata) and the Sila, in the southernmost part.

Acqualagna and Norcia, also Basilicata and Calabria are great lands rich in highly prized truffles. Most of the woods of the Calabrian-Lucan Apennines are home to precious truffles. Among all, the prized white truffle stands out, which develops along canals and streams and finds its ideal habitat in the area of the Sinni river and its tributaries in symbiotic association with poplar and oak.


Studies have found that the production of truffles in Calabrian is of the highest quality, on a par with the most renowned Piedmontese ones.
