Grumolo delle Abbadesse Rice

Rice has been grown since the 16th century in Grumolo delle Abbadesse, a small municipality halfway between Vicenza and Padua, after it was introduced by nuns from the Benedictine abbey of San Pietro di Vicenza. The crop, which currently covers 120 hectares, less than half of what was cultivated in the 17th century, has left its mark on the small town. Splendid patrician villas were built here by Venetian nobles who came to oversee their land. Grumolo Vialone Nano rice has medium-small grains, and thanks to the characteristics of the soil and water, the quality is excellent.

The local Vialone Nano has a low yield, and the market demands more productive varieties. For this reason, many producers have planted modern varieties, like Carnaroli, or even switched to other crops like corn. The local variety comes from a 1937 cross between the celebrated Vialone Nero, which is no longer grown, and the Nano. Classified as semifino, it has round grains of medium size, ideal for salads and especially risotto, particularly with fish and vegetables.
