Harvest-dated and single-estate, Principato di Lucedio is the "grand cru" of rice. The estate’s rice is harvested annually in the fall, carefully dried, and kept protected in the hull until packaged and shipped. Principato di Lucedio grows, harvests, and packs all their own product, skipping the typical consolidation of other growers. This ensures that each and every grain is handled with the same level of care throughout the entire process and that the highest quality is maintained. The most popular Italian rice variety. Its mild nutty flavor and pillowy texture make it extremely versatile
Perfect for classic creamy risottos and rice pudding.
About the Producers:
Lying just east of Torino, the Principato di Lucedio estate has been one of Italy's most esteemed rice producers since the 12th century. A former monastery, the estate has been dedicated to the cultivation of rice through the centuries, growing the grains in plains flooded by pristine water from the melting Alpine snowcaps in the fertile Po River Valley.
