Tarantola Vialone Nano Rice IGP 1kg

Traditionally Venetian

In which Venet¬≠ian pecu¬≠liar¬≠i¬≠ty reigns supreme‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČthe peo¬≠ple in this part of Italy pre¬≠fer this type of rice above all oth¬≠ers for their risot¬≠tos. So much so that it has become a pro¬≠tect¬≠ed variety!


Rice holds a spe¬≠cial place in Ital¬≠ian cui¬≠sine, and this region¬≠al vari¬≠ant is staunch¬≠ly Venet¬≠ian. Vialone Nano is a cross between the Vialone and the Nano rice vari¬≠eties, and has been around since 1937. It has thick, short ker¬≠nels that can absorb twice their weight in liq¬≠uid while retain¬≠ing a firm, sat¬≠is¬≠fy¬≠ing tex¬≠ture. Though it is a lit¬≠tle less starchy than Carnaroli, it makes for impres¬≠sive¬≠ly light risot¬≠tos minus the stick¬≠i¬≠ness and mush.


This risot¬≠to rice is com¬≠mon¬≠ly paired with rus¬≠tic ingre¬≠di¬≠ents like pork, pump¬≠kin, and arti¬≠choke, as well as a vari¬≠ety of game meats and hearty veg¬≠eta¬≠bles. It also makes a won¬≠der¬≠ful¬≠ly robust side dish for meats and fish¬≠es and is an impor¬≠tant com¬≠po¬≠nent in insala¬≠ta di riso‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČa mix of olives, capers, sun¬≠dried toma¬≠toes, and oth¬≠er sim¬≠ply Ital¬≠ian ingre¬≠di¬≠ents. With creamy, fill¬≠ing meals like this, you‚Äôll cer¬≠tain¬≠ly want to grab a glass of Chardonnay. 


Taran¬≠to¬≠la sources its rice vari¬≠eties from all over Italy, com¬≠bin¬≠ing ancient meth¬≠ods and advanced tech¬≠nol¬≠o¬≠gy to main¬≠tain the puri¬≠ty of taste and qual¬≠i¬≠ty in their prod¬≠ucts. They pro¬≠duce 17 vari¬≠eties, includ¬≠ing two bio¬≠log¬≠i¬≠cal ones. They are a hold¬≠er of cer¬≠ti¬≠fi¬≠ca¬≠tion from Deme¬≠ter Inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al, the largest cer¬≠ti¬≠fi¬≠ca¬≠tion orga¬≠ni¬≠za¬≠tion for bio¬≠dy¬≠nam¬≠ic agri¬≠cul¬≠ture, which holds over 4,500 mem¬≠ber companies.
