Whole package of 1 Kg Variety: Carnaroli rice, authentic and cultivated in purity as foreseen by the DOP production disciplinary Characteristics: long and large grain rice, with a remarkable consistency and an excellent resistance to cooking. It has a moderate release of starch and its grains always remain well untied from each other. Uses: it is very versatile and can be used in any preparation, even if it undoubtedly excels in risotto. Excellent for classic rice salads as it keeps grains crunchy and well separated. Excellent for timbales and creative dishes. The Farm: Zaccaria Carnaroli is produced in Salussola, in the province of Biella, in the Baraggia area of Biella and Vercelli, a foothills area of Piedmont located at the foot of Monte Rosa, Biella Alps and the Serra Morenica of Ivrea. Baraggia has peculiar agro-climatic characteristics that make it unique in the world for the cultivation of rice. The clayey soils rich in iron, the proximity to the mountains with lower temperatures on average, determine reduced productions but of excellent quality.
