Many varieties of rice can be labelled “Carnaroli” such as the Karnak and the Carnise precoce.
At Riserva San Massimo, they plant authentic and controlled Carnaroli seeds to grow Superfine Carnaroli Rice and whole Carnaroli Rice: a full superior quality rice.
They produce only the genuine Carnaroli variety, even if that means less production, higher complexities and costs.
They also grow Rosa Marchetti semi-whole Rice, an ancient, rare and fine Italian rice variety.
The cultivation of Rosa Marchetti rice variety was abandoned by conventional farming because of the low production yield, and the quickly bending stems.
It smells and tastes so unique and different that is instantly recognisable.
