Driven by curiosity and a strong passion for this wonderful product, olive oil, Tomaso decides to undertake a training course aimed at deepening his knowledge and refining the tasting technique: for this reason he becomes aware of the First School in the world of sensory analysis, the ONAOO. He first enrolled in the Official Technical Course and obtained the Certificate of Physiological Suitability for Tasting in May 2018.
