Introducing Tenuta San Carlo’s Natural Rice

from our land to your plate

When you try our rice, you can taste the flavors of Maremma.

Located in the floodplain of the Ombrone River, our farm is immersed in Tuscany’s most natural and uncontaminated landscapes.

To produce the highest quality rice, we listen to the land and work with nature – instead of against it.

From the preparation of the land, to the selection of seed and the timing of the harvest, we follow a sustainability ethic and pay close attention to detail at every step in the process.

The result is a rice that is natural and refined, from our land to your plate.

— Ariane Lotti

ALL RICE IS NATURALLY GROWN AND STONE PROCESSED TO ENSURE THE HIGHEST QUALITY

our rice

Each and every one of our rice products has a unique flavor that exalts the natural characteristics of the plant and the land it grows on.

Our Carnaroli rice is the classic Italian variety for making risotto. It is a medium-grain rice and rich in starch, which means that it becomes creamy while remaining al dente. We offer this rice packaged in two sizes: 500 grams or 1 kilogram. The smaller size is perfect to give as a special gift to a loved one (especially when traveling abroad), while the larger size is ideal for sharing a meal with friends and family at home.

Our Ribe rice is another typical Italian variety and is known for its versatility. Ribe rice can be used in soups, salads, and side dishes. We also offer this rice as a ready-to-eat snack in the form of rice chips and rice cakes!

how we GROW our rice

The way we farm reflects the environment that surrounds us. We follow nature’s lead to grow food that we feel good about eating with our family, friends, and community.

In October 2015, we started the multi-year transition to certified organic production. We follow strict organic regulations and do not use chemical herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides to grow our rice. Instead, we start preparing the fields months before planting to naturally fend off weeds and other potential obstacles to a healthy harvest. We use cover crops and crop rotation to improve soil quality and fertility.

We process our rice with the same attention to detail that we apply to production. It took considerable time and effort to find a rice processing facility that held to our sustainable farming principles and high quality standards. Our search led us to partner with the Riseria Rizzotti. Their artisanal stone processing method results in whole and uniform rice kernels that maintain their quality during cooking.

ITALIAN RICE GROWN ACCORDING TO STRICT STANDARDS DURING OUR TRANSITION TO ORGANIC
