But the red in the cap is just underneath the cuticle

I do not think X. persicolor.
Ok, another one: X. armeniacus. But this is also vividly and through in through reddish like the usual rubellus.
X. rubellus can be just brown and it can have all hues and shades of red.

You know how difficult it is

to come to an ID by photo alone without information?
1. bluing in Boletales can vary within the same species in a very high degree depending on age, weather conditions and other factors.
2. Red in the cap especially in Xerocomellus/Xerocomus can also vary much.

I have another option but I do not know that two species by myself (only have seen the first in dry stage and here you have an important feature: the context is apricot too peach-yellow-orangeish when dry)

1. Xerocomus persicolor
2. Xerocomus erubescens

both be found to date in the Mediterraneum only.

Or simple Xerocomus rubellus.
You can rule out Xerocomus cisalpinus.

Another possibility: Xerocomus ripariellus. I have no self-experience with that neither.

these pores doesn’t bruise blue/green like the other obs. and this has orange tones in cap and pore surface (the other doesn´t)and cap not bald like the other. Flesh doesn’t bruise.
