Asparago di Santena e delle Terre del Pianalto

Asparagus is a plant with special diuretic properties and has a history stretching back thousands of years.

The organoleptic qualities of the Santena asparagus, for which it is so highly prized by gourmets, depend largely on the type of permeable, sandy soil in which it is grown, the fact that it is ripened outside the greenhouse and the use of organic fertilisers. Asparagus can be served in various ways and, depending on local traditions, there are several typical preparations. Asparagus is often served by sautéing it after boiling, simply with butter or parmesan cheese. They can also be accompanied by buttered or hard-boiled eggs.
