Riso Vialone Nano

This rice is now used widely in the north east of Italy to prepare typical dishes due to the age-old culinary traditions of the Veneto and Mantua regions. Indeed, it brings out the best in the traditional flavours of those regions, making the simple ingredients that typify these areas, such as pumpkin, snails and game, into the ideal seasoning for a wide variety of risottos. The rounded grains of Vialone Nano mean that this rice is excellent for absorbing seasoning and produces an enviable yield when cooked which is why it can be used in numerous ways and combinations. Particularly suited for risottos.

Hints

For making risottos, use of a mild flavoured olive oil is recommended so it does not mask the very delicate flavour of the rice. The best solution is a combination of oil and butter because the oil raises the so-called "smoke point" of the butter and stops the small quantity of whey in the butter from burning.

Vacuum-packing prevents the rice from changing and preserves the colour, flavour and nutritional values of the grain.

Our method

Attention, care, experience, quality at every stage: from our mill to your table.

Selecting the wheat

Selecting excellent primary materials is the first step, the most important one in fact, in creating unique pasta.

The milling

We have been millers for almost two centuries: way back in 1831, Don Nicola De Cecco was already producing “the best flour in the county” in his mill. To this day, we grind all the wheat in our own mill next to the pasta factory, floating with intense and delicious aromas.
molitura

The dough

Cold water and dough at a temperature of less than 15 degrees: two details allowing us to produce pasta that fully respects the primary material.
impastamento

Drawing

While it is the drawing process that gives the pasta its shape, it is the bronze plates that make our pasta uniquely porous, so it captures all the sauce. Hence, this is one of the special procedures we have chosen to preserve and protect. With great pride.
trafilatura

Drying

Another of the secrets behind our pasta is slow drying at low temperature. It is our way of keeping the sensory properties of the wheat intact.

Riso Superfino Roma

Roma rice has distinctive, large, rounded grains. Particularly suited for creamy risottos and oven-baked dishes.

Hints

When making a risotto, the rice should be only stirred occasionally and delicately so that the starch is released gently, creating a creamy consistency which is the common feature of the best risottos. The risotto can be left unattended almost to the end of cooking only if a tin-plated copper pan is used which spreads the heat evenly both on the bottom and the sides.

Vacuum-packing prevents the rice from changing and preserves the colour, flavour and nutritional values of the grain.
