The first and only PDO rice in Italy.
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".
