Black Whole Grain Venere Rice from Piedmont 500g

$11.00

Gli Aironi black whole grain Venere rice owes its dark colour to the natural pigments produced by the plant itself. The light dehusking allows the rice to keep its nutritional characteristics intact, making it suitable to all. When cooked, it releases an aroma of sandalwood and bread, it is ideal for cold salads with vegetables or as a side dish for meat and seafood preparations.

Gli Aironi decades long experience guarantees the light dehusking of the grain, preserving all the nutritional substances present in the outside part of the rice, responsible for its unforgettable and unmistakable flavour. 

Grown and harvested in Piedmont, Italy.

Producer Learn more about who made this product.

The experience of five generations in rice cultivation has paid off in the “Grange” area (surrounding agricultural land of Vercelli), where the Perinotti family has dedicated its efforts to improving farming conditions in our estate, the Tenuta Pracantone.

Investing in quality, experimenting and adopting agricultural methods with minimal environmental impact, whilst rediscovering the most traditional and valuable varieties of this precious cereal crop seemed the perfect and only choice.

The introduction of a less aggressive form of agriculture allowed the endangered Grey Herons (Aironi Cenerini) to repopulate the paddies. And it’s precisely to those majestic birds that Michele Perinotti chose to dedicate Risi&co, the company he leads with enthusiasm and passion, and where he carries out continuous research in order to keep bringing the perfect risotto and all its many interpretations, with rice at the heart of everything.
