The Italian red variety is still grown in extremely small quantities, which of course has led to impressive-looking statistics.

The number of hectares planted grew 50% between 2012 and 2015 from 49 hectares to 74ha.

This brought about a corresponding increase in production of 152% over the same period from 178 tonnes to 449 tonnes.
