Historical variety of the Vercelli territory that takes its name from a small town in the region. Excellent for the finest risottos, thanks to its big pearled grains, great cooking capacity and ability in perfectly blending with any ingredient and flavour. Also ideal in soups and salads. Remains a little al dente when cooked, since the starch at the centre of the grain remains firm. A superior quality rice, from Oschiena Farmstead, one of the oldest rice growers in Vercelli, committed to maintaining the highest quality crop while respecting the natural habitat and longstanding traditions of the product.
