    Here's the site info for an excellent truffle hunter, who preserves his own stuff in Umbria:
    www.tartufibianconi.it/
    He is called Severio Bianconi.

      Is it actual truffle oil? Or essence of truffle oil?

        I'd say essence in OO

          I find that the "essence" oils have a weak and even artificial taste. I don't think they're worth it when you are looking for that true truffle flavor. I would look for either the just plain truffle oil (it does cost a whole lot more though) or even a quality packaged truffle in oil and shave it super thin (you'll have the bonus of being able to use the oil it comes in.) I know of a great guy in Citta di Castello in Umbria (I work in Italy) but when I'm home, I don't tend to use them because of the price.
