Description

Venetians are famously picky about their rice, and Vialone Nano IGP – a unique variety grown only in the province of Verona – is their favorite risotto rice. Its thick, short kernels can absorb twice their weight in liquid, yet retain a firm, satisfying texture. This makes for a light, creamy risotto without any stickiness. Vialone Nano easily absorbs the flavors of other ingredients and seasonings, and is perfect for risottos with rustic ingredients such as pork, veal, pumpkin, artichokes and other hearty vegetables. Since it retains its lovely round shape after cooking, it makes a great side dish for meat or fish, or a satisfying insalata di riso with olives, capers, artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, cheese, tuna, or any of your favorite ingredients! Gazzani has been producing superfine rice at its mill in Vigasio, near Verona in the region of Veneto, since 1648. There, sandy soil and abundant spring water create the perfect conditions for rice cultivation, documented in that same spot since at least the year 1500. Today, producer Marco Soave continues to cultivate and process rice according to the traditions of his land, using eight of the original giant wooden pestles and Venetian marble mortars that have been in operation since the seventeenth century.
