Rice of Sibari - Nerone
The cultivation of rice in the Piana di Sibari in Calabria covers an area of more than 600 hectares and is constantly increasing because the planting of rice paddies in this area blends perfectly with the local soil balance. The organoleptic and qualitative qualities stand out among all those cultivated in other areas of Italy because they enjoy the natural and climatic advantages given by the Calabrian territory itself. The Nerone is a brown rice with a dark purple color almost black with a very special taste and a scent of freshly baked bread. The coloring is natural because the pericarp, the outermost film, has the color of ebony. Originally from China, where until the nineteenth century it was cultivated only for the Emperor and his court, where it was considered highly aphrodisiac. Pack of 800 g.
