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!
Arborio is the most famous risotto rice and is large grained and a little al dente when cooked. The organic qualities of this rice really shine through in dishes.
