Castle of Roddi
Guided tour and truffle sensory analysis at the Castle of Roddi


Developed on an 11th-century construction, the present building is a significant example of fortified architecture probably attributed to the Falletti family between the 14th and 15th centuries. In the 16th century it was owned by Count Gaio Francesco della Mirandola, grandson of the great philosopher and humanist Pico.
The structure, typical of the donjon but subsequent to the castle of Serralunga d’Alba, allows for more modern defensive solutions here, such as the machicolations on the top floor. Inside, decorations dating back to the 14thand 15th century and kitchens dating back to the 16th century are preserved.


It is certainly easy and pleasant to smell the scent of Tuber magnatum Pico, the precious and rare Alba White Truffle, but it is much more difficult to encode its finer organoleptic characteristics.
