The Fantastic Four

The Veneto radicchio stars of winter cuisine

The Red Radicchio di Treviso IGP 
A crunchy flower of a bitter taste that slowly softens thanks to night frosts. It has leaves that are bright red in colour, contrasting to the bright white of its main stalk. You cannot go a winter without it at your dinner table; it manages to delight even the most refined palates.

The speckled Radicchio di Castelfranco IGP 
It is a gastronomic delicacy: this beautiful and tasty radicchio is reminiscent of a flower due to its large, cream-coloured leaves dotted with red specks. It is cultivated in the fertile soils of the Treviso plain that give it an unparalleled flavour.

The Radicchio di Verona IGP 
It is of an elongated oval shape, with compact dark red leaves embellished with a main white vein. Also known as the "red gold of the Lower Valley", the radicchio of Verona is grown in alluvial soils, sandy and rich in organic matter.

The Radicchio di Chioggia IGP 
It is called the 'Rose of Chioggia' because of its round shape with red leaves attached to a white stalk. This radicchio takes its name from the place that gave it fame, the lagoon town of Chioggia.
