Rice

19 Products

For more than five centuries, rice has been the queen crop of Piedmont, defining its landscape (the typical "risaie") and characterising its agricultural economy. Many varieties of rice are grown here, from the most famous Arborio with its large grains, excellent for creamy risottos, Roma with its fine grains, Carnaroli, whose grains are the most prized of the entire category because it has an excellent capacity to absorb flavours and resist long cooking, and the Sant'Eusebio variety, to the lesser-known Vialone Nano with its small, rounded grains, Gange and the Gioiello, which comes from a particular black plant.
