Po Delta Rice

Po Delta Rice
PGI rice of the Po Delta

Rice is cultivated in the Po Delta from time immemorial: as a matter of fact, the land interested by alluvial phenomena over the years are particularly fertile and constantly benefit from the light sea breeze creating a particular healthy microclimate which, combined with the ancient cultivation systems, makes the local rice a healthy and very nutritious product.
Its cultivation covers an area of about 9,000 hectares: Carnaroli, with pearl-colored and long grains ideal for risotti, Vialone nano, with a larger grain ideal to prepare fish risotto, and Arborio, with smaller and whiter grains. These are the varieties cultivated in particular in the southern area of the Delta, in the Municipality of Porto Tolle.
