L 'appreciation and applause obtained (starting from the chef Visscher) have led us to increase the cultivation so as to be able to have a few thousand packages and to present it to the general public in '98 at the International Motor Showdel Gusto in Turin. It is currently used by many of the most famous Italian restaurateurs who have known and recognized the great quality. With various field trials, the 'experience of many years of cultivation, and a striking manpower effort (because this crop will undertake much) today l' az.
