Black Venere rice owes its colouring to the natural pigments made by the plant itself. In ancient China, for its nutritional features and its special perfume, it was called the “Emperor’s Rice”. The slight refining keeps its nutritive characteristics whole and it is suitable to children, seniors and sportsmen supply. While cooking it spreads a sandal and bread fragrance.

The very little grain keeps its texture. It is ideal as a side dish for meat and fish.

Piedmont is in Italy's northwest and borders Switzerland and France. True to the meaning of its name (foot of the mountain), Piedmont is a land of mountains. It is surrounded on three sides by the Alps, with the highest peaks and largest glaciers in Italy. The most typical specialties of the regional cuisine are fondue and bagna cauda: two warm and out-of-this-world dips that celebrate the Alba white truffle and raw vegetables. Some of the many excellent dishes include the great mixed fry, braised beef in Barolo wine, civet of hare and a wide array of cheeses: toma, robiola, bruss from the Langhe, gorgonzola from Novara, and sernium from Biella.

Gli Aironi

Back five generations the Perinotti Family cultivates rice in the Grange Vercellesi area in Piedmont. A life dedicated to rediscovering varieties of native rice: an ambitious choice in a historic period in which standardization rules. Gli Aironi brand's name means herons, birds that stand out also in the company logo, formerly in way of extinction and now returned in great numbers in the Grange, confirming the company's attention to environmental sustainability. Another proof is the work done to hydraulic works that have allowed to reduce to the minimum the usage of chemical products.
