Gigante Vercelli riso originario

High quality ancient variety with low yield for excellent risotto

Gigante Vercelli rice is an ancient variety that Ideariso recovered in purity and put back into cultivation and which, by decree of the Ministry of Agriculture, is responsible for the preservation as a historical variety.

Low yields, the organoleptic characteristics and natural resistance to disease (absolute peculiarity) are the features which formerly had selected this variety to obtain a product excellent and healthy. These items, still today, make it a unique rice in the preparation of risotto.
The large grains remain separate when cooked while making a creaming risotto itself.
At Gigante Vercelli we reserve the fields with higher vocation for the variety, all located in the province of Vercelli. Fungicides are not necessary and are not used for its cultivation. Processing is performed in a high quality plant, with low volumes of husked rice per day, and the result is a perfect grain. From all this comes the definition of “QUALITA’ ASSOLUTA”

To ensure the preservation of the quality, the rice is packaged in a protective atmosphere immediately after processing.
