"This is the best brown rice I have ever had." That's what many of our brown rice loving friends have to say about Gazzani Riso Vialone Nano Integrale.  It is so "whole grain" it is practically crunchy with rice husk. You can do anything with this rice, you do with other rices, it just takes longer!  This rice, has an incredibly nutty rich flavor and a rustic texture. 

Vialone Nano Brown Rice is great by itself. It can be combined with other ingredients and seasonings for risottos with other rustic ingredients such as pork, veal, pumpkin, artichokes and other hearty vegetables. Since it retains its lovely round shape after cooking, it makes a great side dish for meat or fish, or a satisfying insalata di riso with olives, capers, artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, cheese, tuna, or any of your favorite ingredients!

Gazzani has been producing superfine rice at its mill in Vigasio, near Verona in the region of Veneto, since 1648. There, sandy soil and abundant spring water create the perfect conditions for rice cultivation, documented in that same spot since at least the year 1500. Today, producer Marco Soave continues to cultivate and process rice according to the traditions of his land, using eight of the original giant wooden pestles and Venetian marble mortars that have been in operation since the seventeenth century.
