Arborio PDO rice Baraggia

Big grain for great risottos

PROTECTED DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN: The Baraggia rice production area is located in the northeast of Piedmont, at the foot of Monte Rosa (Alps), in the Provinces of Biella and Vercelli. With a climate characterized by rather cool summer months and the presence of cold waters, the Baraggia rice fields are the first to be irrigated by mountain springs. For these features and for the care with which it is grown ilRiso Baraggia has a majority holding to cooking, superior consistency and low stickiness.

The  Arborio rice  is a record-breaking rice. In fact it is:

the Italian rice best known abroad
the Italian rice with the biggest grain of all
the most Italian rice sold in Italy 

All of these features make it a great rice. Good for risotto, perfect in creaming as it has a lot of starch, can be used for many recipes, maybe a bit to view all his great versatility. Let's say a "rice to make everything", but of good quality. We said good risotto, good in salads and even in soups. With good cooking resistance, always in the heart housewives will carry the Arborio rice.


RECOMMENDED FOR:
creamy risottos and wave, rice salads, soups, pies.

The first and only PDO rice in Italy.

We live and cultivate rice in Baraggia Biella, a rice production area located in the northeast of Piedmont, at the foot of Monte Rosa (Alps). Here the climate is characterized by rather cool summer months and by the presence of cold waters, our rice fields are the first to be irrigated by mountain springs. For these features and for the care with which we at Rice Guerrini will cultivate it, the Baraggia Rice has a greater resilience to cooking, superior consistency and low stickiness.
The slow craftsmanship of our Pileria also tends to whiten less grain, not to polish it, thus increasing the taste and resistance to pulping.
For this reason some rice grown in this area can be certified with the Protected Designation of Origin "Rice Baraggia Biella and Vercelli".
