Zaccaria Armonio Rice 500g


Armonio Rice from the Baraggia of Biella, Italy

Father and son toil long days in the 500 plus acres of rice fields of Biella that produce some of the world’s finest rice for risotto dishes. The mighty Alps to the north deliver fresh spring water through irrigated channels that create an intricate network of gridded rice fields. The Zaccaria family has been harvesting rice for over 150 years, and uses minimal chemicals in the process, preferring the arduous task of weeding by hand to eliminate weeds. It processes its own harvests on site.

The Armonio grain is extremely similar to basmati and can be used as substitute in all cases.  It is a scented rice, with an intense and delicate fragrance. The flavors of Asia in an Italian grain. Vacuum sealed for longer storage.
