List of products: Riseria Merlano

For over 50 years, Merlano family cultivated many types of rice - Carnaroli rice DOP, Arborio rice, Baldo rice, Sant’Andrea rice, and Black rice - using traditional methods.
Genuine passion and a story handed down from father to son.
Every day the rice, harvested only from the best crops, is "pilato" by stone, selected with patient care, packaged and controlled with advanced methods that ensure the highest quality.
They use only organic fertilizers to fertilize the soil and zero environmental impacts products to eliminate the weeds. Moreover, they hand-weed the rice three times.
For the Merlano family rice is a work of art: only the best crops are selected and then transformed into the raw product with the most advanced technologies and the utmost care.
