Riso Nero Venere, Principato di Lucedio, 500gr.
Venus as a Rice
A dense darkness with a silky bite, the black Venus is an Italian rice featured with a full Eastern aroma similar to that of Basmati and Jasmine. It will add sensuality to sight and smell in any dish (risotto, salads, or as a side for fish and vegetable spicy stews).
The Lucedio Abbey, in Trino, Vercelli area: ihere in the XV Century the Cistercian monks first introduced in Italy the cultivation of rice. Through an history rich in vicissitudes, having undergone the Papal and the Napoleonic domination thanks to its strategic position along the Francigena road, it is today a flourishing farm engaging in the production of extraordinary rices: the vocation of the area, together with the low-impact agricultural strategies and a centuries-long know-how, allow Principato di Lucedio's rices to be the history-flavouredplus to make any risotto taste perfect.
