Trees: mainly hardwood, oak. Gills do not break. No specific smell at the base of the stem. I know by now that russula are difficult, but only post very distinct specimens (in this case the color is very pronounced).

Flesh white, immutable. Taste mild. Distinctly violet cap color.

turci/amethystina possible

For sure far from R.cyanoxantha: look at the yellow gills.

Do gills split or not? (cyanoxantha group)

What about trees nearby?
Is there a iodine smell in the base of the stem?
Questions, questions, questions!
Seriously, Russula is difficult as hell.
A wild guess is Russula amethystina/turci. (smell the base)
