The Grange Vercelli rice lands of the fertile Po valley, whose waters are fed from the Alps of northern Italy, are the historical centre of European rice production.
This high quality organic Italian rice is cultivated by three long established Vercelli rice producing families. Gentle dehusking using the producers’ traditional in-house facility guarantees the lightest shelling. This enables the nutrients of the outer layer and germ to be retained. This method is critical to the final great taste and texture of the cooked rice.
Once dehusked, the rice grains are graded according to colour, quality and size. Only the highest quality products are good enough for Seggiano!
This organic black Nerone rice grain was developed from an ancient Chinese variety sometimes called forbidden rice, as for centuries it was cultivated for the exclusive enjoyment of the Chinese Emperor and nobility. Nowadays all of us can enjoy this delicious rice variety from the Vercelli growers of Piemonte.
Riso nero is wonderfully fragrant, with a deep, nutty taste and is prized for its nutritional value.
