We are all off truffle hunting today. We start early as it is a bit of a drive to San Giovanni d’Asso. We are to meet the famous lawyer and white truffle hunter “Fabio Capitani”. The ride is smooth as we wend our way through the countryside so familiar to me now. We arrive outside the village. Two men await us in small cars. Surprisingly it isn’t too secretive so far – cautious, yes but not exceptionally so. They motion to us to follow and take off at a breakneck speed in their little sprite while we do our best to keep up lumbering behind in the “van”.
