NOTE: Prices refers to the white truffle of Piedmont or the "tuber magnatum pico". Wholesale prices are prices paid to the truffle searcher. Trade gains are computed as the difference between the consumer and wholesale prices.

The Asti truffle market opens each Wednesday morning during the truffle searching season. After the market closes, the chairman of the "Associazione Trifulau" of Asti announces the reference quotations for the week to the Agriculture and Craft Chamber of Asti.

Year on year percent changes are calculated by Bloomberg News comparing the weeks that are in the same order rank in the truffle season.

Week on week percent changes are calculated by Bloomberg News between weeks with available price quotations, also when these are not consecutive.

(*) Because of problems in the fiscal treatment of sales among individuals and companies in Italy and aboard, beginning 2012 December 5 the Chamber of Commerce of Asti ceased to release the consumer prices.
